I tried to defend the guy and asked everyone to be civil and give him a chance. I pointed out what he did (cross posting) incorrectly which he corrected.
His daughter sent me a PM thanking me for standing up for her father. She explained that he was new to soldering and the hobby, designed this device to help himself with soldering connectors and was happy with the results and thought he could sell them at a small profit and help the RC community, which decided to turn on him and make him out to be a villain for doing so.
The following show we mentioned the product and their URL, and they got some good business from our plug. I made a point to mention them due to the treatment they had received here. Shortly following that, they sent me a freebie of the product so I could test it out and as a thanks for my support.
I found the product to work very well. And I got a very early version that doesn't have holes for larger bullets. I might have to get a new one since I need to use vice grips for my 6mm bullets on my larger setups. I think you guys will be happy with it. The only drawback I found is the fact the metal works as a heatsink, so larger connectors are sometimes difficult to get hot enough to get the solder flowing, but the upside to that is once you are done the solder cools FAST and sets quickly.
Hey Diggs I just ordered one and this is a reply I got from him.
"The Jigs Up that you will receive
will be a new version that has a heat resistant phenolic resin insert
where the bullet connectors go."
Can't wait to try it out.
