Mmm let me see if I understood correct what you've asked.
You're wondering if you need something else than tin and a soldering gun to make a union in the new piece.
The only thing you could use to make a joint is a copper cable if you need to make a "bridge" between the parts.
Let me know if that was correct, if not I could try to help you.

Well i think so. I'm wondering what the thing connecting the prongs on the 6 way switch is. What do I have to do to setup the new potentiometer? Thanks

The thing you see in the joint of the prongs I'm pretty sure that's a cable but covered with tin.

Well first you'll have to melt the old tin in order to get the old potenciometer out. The option is to cut the cables with any tool you have for that job (if you do that be sure to cut the cables very close to the weld; and remember the way they are soldered).
The best way to get a good weld is to:
1- Melt a little tin over the potenciometer (not too much)
2- Melt a little tin over the copper part of the cable
3- When you join both parts you can use more tin but I think by the time there will be enough (at least to give a little union, afterwards you can put some more tin to reinforce the weld).

Let me know if I'm missing something or if you need more help.

And don't forget about a rosin! You should dip your tip in it, before touch a tin with it.
After covering both things with a tin, join them, make them hot with your tip and touch it with a tin - do not get a lot of tin onto your soldering gun, do it with touching a hot soldered thing.

Geez, I'm out of English words on this subject wink.gif
Get your gun hot, dip it into the rosin, get it out. take one of the soldering things, get it hot, dip into the rosin and touch GENTLY with a tin to make it cover it. Do it so with another thing. Now, having both of them prepared for soldering, join them, make them hot and touch them with a tin. DO NOT PUFF! Never! It has to be shiny after that.
