Yeah,

It's been some time since I posted. You are right about that. There are a couple of igo maniacs here that always had some unkind word to say so I stayed away. All I ever tried to do was to help you guys out as I'm a long time sovereign user and thought I could positively add to the conversation but got turned off from the constant influx of negativity. So I left for awhile.

I have been building my own coils a long time and have been using MEK for bonding . Really works well. What I did was to carefully cut the connector off even with the top of the coil. Cut the 4 wires so that only a 1/4 inch was left and splayed them out flat 90 degrees from one another. Soldered up a new cable. Then made a ring from some plastic I use to form coil shells and bonded it with my MEK slurry to the existing raised coil connection part of the coil. At that point I filled it with epoxy and slid a new cable connector down into the epoxy. Once set it's as good as new.

As far as the MEK is concerned, I can't find it anymore. Only MEK substitute which works but not as well. Thinking it must be outlawed here in NY.

Bob
