Only the HOT end...
She's a work of art, been a faithful workhorse since I got it in the 70's... She's getting a bit forgetful every now and then... A little rap on the base to free up the magswitch and all is good again.
I can see a Hakko on the horizon though.

If I had a dollar for every time I slipped on the handle and reflexively tried to catch the hot end...
well, I'd have at least $2
because I clearly didn't learn my lesson the first time
at least I didn't try to catch it in my lappost #10748 of 1304812/12/12 at 7:42pmpost #10749 of 1304812/12/12 at 8:47pmpost #10750 of 1304812/12/12 at 9:28pmpost #10751 of 1304812/14/12 at 12:04amMy DIY USB Cable.

Hey man, this gallery is all about building your own cables. I'd say that iron's a prime candidate for a high-end OCC copper recabling in a litz braid with silver solder and gold-plated plugs. Then your every soldering job will be in high fidelity!post #10754 of 1304812/14/12 at 3:59am
After soldering a plug, wrap the tape through the exposed joints before putting the housing on. It's usually a better fit than the thick plastic sleeve that plugs come with, and helps minimize the risk of shorts if any of the solder tabs flex..post #10755 of 1304812/14/12 at 9:03amQuote:
