  • How to Solder

    Hi David,
    Can you make a cabal report here on how to solder noise suppression capacitors and ESC wires to the motor leads? Actually you mentioned it in one of your articles in personal site http://vabiz.com/d&e/articles.html about the 2 inch Sub Driver. You even made a unique soldering jig. Unfortunately the photos in that site are mysteriously missing. Hope you can make a new one here.

    You know, that's a damned fine idea (oh! ... before I forget: Finish your Damned KILO!!).

    What with a clients recent broken blow-valve and the angst suffered by others over putting their wires together, coupled with the need to solder the MPC's to the LPB motors -- all good reasons to get you guys into the black-art of soldering.

    I'll work it up as a Cabal Report and have mike post it in the Gazette, and I'll reduce it to a piece for this thread.

    I'm doing a show tomorrow so I'm busy pre-mission checking boats and will be busy post-mission checking those same boats tomorrow night. But, I'll work on the article Sunday.

    Good call. Here's a tease for you till then:

    David

          Yiou don't have to spend a fortune. I got a really nice temperature controlled 50 watt iron for 10 from Maplin. Works great.

              I like the Ellie has Ninja soldering skills pose.
              If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
