    Electronics Shop that can shorten headphone cables

    I'm in a bit of a pinch. Anyone know of an electronics store that is adept at cutting the cable on a set of In Ear Monitors and soldering on a new 3.5mm jack?

    Thanks

    Anything beyond the old 2 wire set up is going to be tough. Good luck and I'll follow the thread in case an answer turns up.

    This. I was there last week and there's a treasure trove of 'bits' and knowledge there. I can't wait to add more switches and things to the bike.

    seconded!

    yep, stumbled into their shop a year or so ago looking for a special connector i needed for work.. i was impressed with their little setup.


    Yes Frank i saw them soldering away, they have a couple of proper stations.

    Would love to see it sometime. Have considered the Neutrino or the Motobrain at some point but ended up going with what I had already: Fuzeblock. Maybe you can elaborate on some of the rules and conditions you've set up in using the Neutrino - I could use some ideas for the future.

    Neither IT Electronics nor Lee's do any soldering work, but found a place here in New West that does: Compucom Solutions

    My favorite is that to use the temperature probe to manage my heated gear. It's set to come on at a set temp and heat level, and then it scales up or down as the temp gets warmer or colder.

    I also have it set to keep my GPS powered on for 5 minutes after the bike turns off, this way it does not turn off when i stop for gas.

    If i had fancy driving lights, i could make then turn on automatically a set amount of time before sunset every night.

    interestingly enough CDG, i had to do some soldering of my own tonight.. picked up some AUX driving lights for the Raider.

    the connector leads are way too long so i soldered in new .040 Mutlilock terminals for the new turn signals w/ DRLs..

    i could use some practice, but it will do for now.. these use stranded wires as well but the gauge is much better (ie. easier) to deal with.

    i would be afraid of over-heating the drivers etc with how tiny those headphone wires can be, but maybe i'm overthinking it.

    for anydoby else messing around with wiring, when it comes to bike's lighting n' DIY just solder the damn things. crimping sux!

    For vehicle use, a properly crimped connector is far more reliable than soldered one. * *
