My dad just found out 75 watt multipurpos soldering iron and I'm gonna get into working on my guitar. I plan to fix my wiring, then taking out my tone pot and using the whole to put in a volume pot for my neck, to kinda make a killswitch effect.

Any other susgesitions on what to do with my new/old soldering iron.

You could start building electronics stuff.

BTW, with 75w, if you don't know what you're doing, you could easily damage the parts you have. Try not to touch your iron to anything for more than about... 3-5 seconds. Any more than around 10 seconds and you might actually damage something. Let everything cool down for 10-20 seconds too.

What's actually the case is that higher wattages help you prevent damage. Since you don't have to hold the iron to the metal for so long. But again, that's only when you know what you're doing.

tone pots are typically linear, volume pots are typically tapered

if you're using a 500k volume pot, you'd want to get a logarithmic 500k pot, or find one labeled A500K or 500K-A or whatever.

Mine is... Or my spare is. But one of my tone pots is.

soldier pennies to other metal things. its fun


Actually, put a metal layer over the top of your guitar, and solder dimes to the whole thing. They you can have a Dimebag tribute guitar. They have a guitar like that down here at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino here in florida. Its pretty awsome looking. He actually used it in a performance. They have a bunch of other guitars from people like Hendrix, Slash, Dimebag, Rhoads.
