Very cool! I done this a couple of times myself, and I saw that You mention to have two soldering irons, which is absolutely right! I will also say that I found that the normal soldering irons is far too weak when it comes to soldering on the covers on the pots. So get one that is used for cars or something like that.... smile.gif
Very nice article Jones !!!!!! smile.gif

Thanks mate!!
Yeah, you're right about the Soldering Irons. I know there's 3 in the pic but that's just to show different types! There's a 100W for doing all connections to the Pot Cases and then I'll either use the yellow 'Soldering Station' as it has a variable Temp control or a small Gas one for soldering to the Pot Tabs and switch!
Glad you liked it Staffay, there's more to come yet!!!
