Warning: Don't try T12 tips
Just a warning guys,

I was under influence of a random YT movie where someone was saying that pinecill will possibly take T12 tips. 

It will not!

it has similar dimensions and shape but there are very different. T12 are much longer

Don't even try putting it in. It will short the output and damage the iron.
From now the iron is not able to sense the temperature nor regulate it so the tip is fully on, making it glowing red.

For now, I diagnosed that one of the MOSFETs in U13/CJQ7328  is dead short. I don't have one handy. I will let you know later if replacing it fixes the problem.
