Need a soldering iron on the playa??

Postby tattooedreceptionist » Thu Aug 24, 2017 9:27 am

I'll have my soldering iron and some solder available if anyone needs it! We are a trailer and a black Nissan truck (no camp) and plan to be around 3:45 and I.

I made a light up hood with uv fairy lights and they connections are quite flimsy so I decided to bring it for repairs during the week. Figured I might not be the only one who will have technical difficulties :lol:

A gas iron I presume :D

Good to see you have it 'in case' not to finish some work.

Nope, we have a generator. Didn't know they made gas ones, good to know though!

Used to carry one in my toolcase until they found out the case can explode on leaking of the gas iron :D

I usually bring my soldering iron, but lately like to use IDC splicing connectors and Wago lever nuts for connecting wire up. It's great for field repairs. The splicers also provide waterproof connections because the wires are embedded in gel.
