LOL! No, this one doesn't have a main power switch either. In some ways, that may be good because it has a "cool down" cycle for the hot air handle. I'll bet it doesn't have an off switch so that a person doesn't turn it off while it's still hot.

I was able to solder most of the board together yesterday, except for those resistors I managed to forget to order... It looks way better than the hand-soldered work on the opposite side. I just hope I didn't overheat the parts.
