  1. Was looking at Third Hands the other day and they were either cheapo ones like I already binned several times before or £30 jobs made of coolant hose, but with the same duff croc-clips on the end. So, took a punt on a mini vice - they seem to be marketed at Walnut Carvers, but work well for fiddly electronics too https://www.amazon.co.uk/Yakamoz-Universal-Jewelry-Repairing-Sculpture/dp/B075F5NC4B/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1519339395&sr=8-3&keywords=walnut+vice&dpID=417NpVmYYuL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch Being made of cast alu it's heavy enough that it doesn't need fixing to a bench for light work, and won't melt! The jaws aren't forced to run parallel like an engineers vice, which presents an issue holding smaller parts at one end But putting a similar small part at the other end works well... ...and forces the jaws parallel, ensuring the part isn't squeezed out I soldered more than 100 of these leads over a couple of nights, and never lost my temper once The walnut clamps are also handy for wrapping solder round for a bit of tinning
  2. A little help from the pros please. I am rebuilding my 86 Hornet. Looking good so far. I purchased a Tamiya TBLE-02S ESC to replace the original MSC, as it was just beat up beyond repair. My original Futaba receiver(FP-R2GS) is in great shape so I was planning on using it for the rebuild. However, I have come across a problem The connector from the new ESC to the receiver is totally different from the original. 1. Are these two components compatible? 2. Is there an adapter available? Source? 3. Or can I simple snip off the connectors and rewire? Any help is greatly appreciated!! kal
