Only thing I can see you missed was to use some 3 or 4 to one shrink tube. Nice job on the vid.

This was a simple video to show basic technique. I used oversized heat shrink to make it easier to see in the video. Soldering around a tripod and light stand is not that easy :-)

I use high quality 3M 301 heat shrink.

Thx.

I'm doing a series of videos. One for each type of connector.

Thanks for the video.
Just learning myself, and so far have a wire splice and an EC3 connector under my belt. Will look forward to your ec3 connector video, to see how I could improve.

Chris,
Noticed the Hako soldering station. Same one I use. They're great!
