LEGO Plastic vs. Aluminum Compact E-Nail Case
Travel far through the galaxy with this compact e-nail controller and read more about why so many prefer this ABS cases over aluminum. To put it short, plastic offers much better weather protection than metal due to the non-conductivity of the plastic material itself. The plastic acts as another insulating layer between you and possible electric shock. Metal cases can make direct electrical connection if a wire were to come loose. If and when a soldering joint eventually fails this could be a big hazard.
How to Check if Your E-Nail is Fuse Protected
You can quickly see if your enail is fused or not because the power switch on back will show this. Besides asking your seller or looking at the product page, this is the fast way to check. Do you see a fuse symbol on the back and a space in between the switch and the plug? That space should be a removable insert, which holds the fuse. For pictures and more information check out this post. If you see this you are likely in good shape. You may want to go the extra mile and pop it out to confirm that it’s there, but 99.9% of the time it is. So if you see a little cut out section with a fuse symbol on it your enail has fuse protection.
Fast-Blow Fuse: 99% Idiot-Proof!
This fuse is a quick acting “fast blow” fuse” in the circuit to cut the power quickly in case an accident such as a short circuit were to happen. Either way, it would not be fun to get shocked even for a tiny bit, so I just want to educate anyone who cares to read as much as I can. Now you know your equipment enough to be confident in the safety aspects and prevent unnecessary accidents.
Who is an e-nail made for?
Some of you ask: “What is the advantage of using an e-nail setup over a torch?” Well, an e-nail is perfect for dab stations that are stationary. They are great for any size of dab: large dabs, shorter multi-sessions, and one-off’s. You don’t need to tune or calibrate. Each controller is set for dabbing ready to #stopdropandglob (or for a casual #terptaster). MAny dabbers prefer silent dabbing and are averse to the sounds of a torch, which can be obnoxious at times. An e-nail is perfect for those who are not accident prone, and who can keep accident prone individuals safe when around an exposed electric heating element, such as one used with an e-nail.
