In the assembly instructions it looks like an attempt has been made to solder down the heat sink tab of the regulator,
I doubt you can but is that the intention ?

Thanks

the instructions show the tab soldered down. you dont have to do this although if you do it will make a slightly better heat sink. In the end we decided that the screw should hold it down well enough so either way is alright!
