Wondering if you guys could give me a few hints or tips. I re-wired my LP last night after working with Robert through a few email and had the following issues/questions:
1) I notice my solder joints on the back of the pots ball up rather than spread out over the contact point like other's joints. Is there a reason for this?
- I am thinking this is the case because I didn't get the surface ready by either scratching it up or using flux?
2) I am never able to follow what is considered correct soldering technique where you touch the contact point, let it get hot, then melt the solder to the point...not touching the iron tip, and then place the wire. I almost always have to have the solder touching the iron tip to have it melt. Is this weird?
My solder joints for the most part look shiny, I guess. I use a decent 30 watt iron.
3) I accidentally touched some of the wires coming in from the switch and now there is some exposed wire through the plastic covering. Will this be an issue with noise/microphinics/squeels?
