We have discovered that in some instances, there is a problem with the casing / wiring on the mains plug of this product.

The screw holding the two parts of the plug together may be insecure (this is not obvious on inspection) and can give rise tot he plug separating. the wiring within the plug may also be incorrect, leading to a dangerous condition.

If you have bought this product from Index Ltd after July 1999:

PLEASE STOP USING IT IMMEDIATLEY

The Soldering Kit should be returned to your nearest Index store for a full refund.

we apologise for the inconvenience caused.
