Default Re: Melted my Heavy Duty F/R Switch

Soldering is a really simple basic process. You can train yourself or hire a trained professional. Either way the end result should never look like what we saw here. I am sure that performance was compromised before the meltdown. So proper fittings may enhance performance on this cart. I would go with a new HD F&R and professionally soldered cable ends.

Yes, so is pulling a tooth, Captain Obvious, but practice makes perfect. There's a learning curve to almost everything... so I got a couple bad solder joints, it's more rewarding (for me) when you can do something yourself... as long as it works ! I got about 95% of my cart perfect (thanks to many members on this site) versus hiring a trained professional. I'll go back and practice. On the plus side, the other 32 or so solder joints look much better and are holding up nicely. (for now...)

jus' sayin'

Satisfaction is great. But To be honest.....
If even 1 joint looks like that I doubt the rest are okay. Don't take that personal. I'm just saying that performance depends upon correct connections. I posted that for everybody else's benefit. People read these threads and think that's okay ~ I don't want them getting the wrong idea about why we solder our connections... a good crimp joint will perform superior to a bad solder joint.
