Soldering is not easy; at least for me.I have owned a Mighty for 5 years and the on/off switch has broken. S & B quoted a ridiculous price to fix it and it is not worth it, plus I have to send it halfway around the world, and get it back.
Thanks to this thread I have worked out how to get in and have a look and the top of the switch is sheared off. Can't find it inside so not sure what happened to it?
Is this absolutely the right switch (pictured above)? It is cheap but I need to get it shipped from the US to AUS so that adds up.
Also I have never soldered, and this is tiny. Am I kidding myself attempting to replace this?
I've been doing IT stuff for 30 years and have had to do electronic repairs involved that required soldering things. It was something I never mastered. I don't have steady hands, and I just don't have the technique.
Maybe you can find someone who does a lot of repairs on radios or SCADA, or other industry where sometimes things need to be soldered together?
