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.

I understand, and Welcome back...thanks for posting the info, makes it alot easier seeing someone else's craftmanship. Be safe and looking forwards to your next post........joe

So the MEK slurry is used to melt the old plastic by disolving, then poured, and it air dries? I used MEK a long time ago, and it served as a thinner in place of Acrylic lacquer thinner...so maybe acrylic lac thinner would work also, since both dissolve plastic and is only used as a thinner.



Effort is Important, But knowing where to make an effort can make all the difference!
