I recently bought this soldering iron-
It is of 35W and takes a few minutes to get warm but it takes a whole half an hour to cool down. Is it normal? Or am I just getting paranoid? Is it alright if it takes so much time to cool? I'm asking this as I've had virtually no experience with a soldering iron.
Also, it will be nice if someone can give me a link to making a cheap regulator to control the power of this iron.As of now, its a beast and it keeps on getting hot and hot (I've only had one run at it, so maybe I'm saying that because of lack of knowledge). I need a regulator to keep it calm.
