    Hi, I have a transformer which gives 8V and 32V from 230V...I need 24V for soldering station. If I connect them in reverse polarity into series, the voltmeter shows me 24V, which is good. And the transformer can support more than 2A which is also very good.

    I want to use Hakko 907 clone as a solder iron with regulator based on ATmega328 or something similar.

    My questions:
    1. Can I use this trnsformer in the connection?
    2. Can I use that 8V or supporting the MCU or should I use separate smaller transformer for electronics?
    3. Where to connect ESD pin then?
    4. Is there a way to somehow convert that 24 difference in potential to be 24V from ground?

    Thnaks for advices.
