I have a dumb question
« on: July 04, 2017, 09:43:48 AM »
I just received this soldering mat & was wondering what the wristband with the wire is for?

Thanks, Jeff  :coolguy:

The wristband / wire is for discharging static electricity you may have built up from clothing etc ..

Strap it on, attach the other end to the item you are working on, the workstation or a grounded item and you dont zap any electronics you are working on :)

I'm glad I asked I'm going to be removing the electronics from my Taranis and install it in a new case.
