I’m thinking of creating a category for posting about equipment, like soldering irons, solder, flux, wire, etc. It’s a topic that’s fairly well covered on other boards though, so I’m not sure it’s particularly helpful. Opinions?
I’d say it doesn’t hurt.
Too many categories does dilute the forum, but since this is my forum, and I kind of want to post about equipment, I would tend to agree in this case…
I say include it. Case in point, I didn’t know there was an issue with the Hakko counterfeits until someone messaged me. I found out I’d received one and luckily got it sent back and replaced before it was too late. Maybe even start a thread/poll on what we all use and suggest as an overall “Best Bet” shopping list we can direct people to.
I’m all for it. there is a lot of differing opinions but I think I can say this for everyone on this forum, there’s no opinion we value more then yours @profezzorn. I would love to hear about your setup.
Would you divided this tips into different categories or just have them all in one thread?
One category, different threads.
If it gets really popular, I could divide it into sub-categories later.
Wait… Is it a hyper-spanner, or a hydro-spanner?
sounds like hydro to me
It’s a “hydrospanner”
…according to Wookiepedia anyway.
Are there any other in-universe tools I can use in the category description?
I suppose I could use other universes.
I’ve always wanted a left-handed flange-tuner…
Harris wrench & Pilex driver from TFA. That’s all I know in-universe.
