    simple belt driven is the way to go... and totally manual. i have the funk firm turntable with ortofon red. sounds fantastic. needs the cartridge\stylus to be calibrated (physical) every now and then. cheers -vin
  3. +1. Had 16 hour runs with no syncing in between. -vin
  4. put a wide blade screwdriver in the slot where the hinge is and twist.
  5. seems like your earlier soldering was leadfree SnPbAg - hence the requrement of higher temperature... and now you are on 60/40.
  6. While these may be the way it is done out there - a LOT of it is overkill for the work we do with the equipment we handle. Some of the good practices - keeping the iron tip tinned, using the ideal quantity of solder for a joint, care in tinning the cable, et al. Some of the things not really needed for what we work with - frequent cleaning procedures with kimwipes - the soldering iron tip, the solder itself and multiple cleans of the job work (the item being soldered)... Having said this - a lot depends on exactly what is the job at hand... (if one is doing SMD IC replcements - a lot of what is in the video applies. if one is just doing XLR connectors - no...) As for your predicament - the information is not enough to provide a sensible remedy. I would want to know: Which Hakko unit? How old is the tip? What solder are you using/how old is it/how was it stored? Need to know composition and gauge Did you clean and tin the tip before attempting anything at all? Did you use a liquid flux from a flux pen or a syringe before trying to melt the existing solder junction? So many questions... TO Dalton: OF COURSE the real good stuff is STILL available. I wonder why you say it isn't. cheers -vin
