Only the HOT end... biggrin.gif

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 rolleyes.gif

You only forget that the iron is grounded and touch it to a hot (Live Reverse) monitor chassis once...

Wrecked a great tip that day... biggrin.gif

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!

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..
