Oh, thats not that high, was making sure that you weren't using something crazy like 100 or 140.

With this post you have stirred a great desire in me. As I gaze longingly on such a fine tool I can but imagine the instantanous melting of solder in the joining of even large gauge wires and vaporization of small parts. It makes my nipples stiffen, and my desk may soon tip as a result of my growing desire but I can not overt my gaze from this tool. OOOOOOOH. Perhaps the worst part of finding this thing I so badly want is also finding it so readily available and willing to be touched and held firmly in my hand. Perhaps some day it will be mine, until then I will have to make do with simply looking shyly from afar and knowing that I have an inadequate regulated Weller 40W at home. Despite the fact that my own tool is more than adequate for the joining of smaller parts it no longer seems like enough. What should I do if I want to solder a 16ga wire to a tube socket? Would my dinky little weller be able to handle it? Would it just cough and sputter feebly on the floor while a man with a real tool could finish the job? I banish these thoughts! How I curse you sanity and practicality! were you not to have stepped in and remind me I dont need something so outstandingly awesome I would own such a tool now. Some day one of you sanity or practicality will leave me and I will take this tool into my home, and we will solder together to consummate our union.

any one have any idea's before I send them in?

post #27 of 31

its very hard to work with just a picture and limit description.

 

I guess you should send them in to get it fix and ask the technician what went wrong.

post #28 of 31

I'd imagine you tore the solder pad off when trying to remove the existing wires. Give Grado a call, they may be able to solder on the new cable while replacing the driver when you send it in.
