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.

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..
Right on mate, never heard of this before. Will try soon.
