Not an active subject... read back a few more posts, it basically ended in 2012, 8 years ago... not active in my book.
It is an old thread but still I had a good laugh with the mentioning of bypassing the fuse. It is like removing brakes from your car because the squeak.I blew the fuse on the transformer (like I expected) so I had to tear apart the transformer unit to bypass the fuse.
It was not an active subject.... that's all I was saying, not rejecting the content of the thread, just responding to you that it was not an active subject, someone commented out of nowhere, and then you took that to be "active"... and I disagreed... he commented on something that had been inactive for quite some time.Didn't know this was an active subject till I went to post about my find this morning. Over the years made several hand rails and steps soldering brass, the last was most frustrating so looked into Resistance Soldering. Found Micro Mark is offering a Resistance Soldering Set Super Value #87726. Has maybe all that you would need to do small jobs. Received it yesterday and played with it a little to become familiar. It even came with scraps of brass and copper to learn the art. Sorry I didn't decide to go this way long ago. If anyone wants to offer any suggestions how to make my learning curve easer, please do so. Thank You
EDIT; I have no affiliation with Micro Mark, just an old dog learning a new trick.
