People that can do some easy soldering?

Hi ,

My cat ruined the usb-cables of my 2 PC keyboards. (These are fairly new and not el cheapo keyboards)

I am looking for a person that can solder these broken usb cables together.
Or solder a new usb-plug on the cable.

For a pro or hobbyist some easy work that only take some minutes, but needs to be done neat.

Does anyone know some reliable student or hobbyist that can do this for an acceptable price?

Living in City Zürich

Re: People that can do some easy soldering?

If you have the soldering iron, the solder, and electrical tape (you should be able to pick them up in Coop bau-hobby store), I can stop by on evening this week and do it for you .... in exchange for a glass of red wine and some nibbles ? .

Unfortunately, I do not have that equipment here ....

Cheers ....

Re: People that can do some easy soldering?

I feel like if you went to any small electronics store and told them, they would probably do it for a cheap price, less than 5 CHF. Fixing that is very easy .

Re: People that can do some easy soldering?

What exactly is broken? Can you send a picture? Is it just a cable splice? (what did the cat do?)

Or do you need new USB plugs? I'm in Dietikon and can do it, but can't really move my soldering station too easily (its 120v, have it setup here with a transformer).

I have a soldering iron, but... honestly, you don't need one. Grab some electrical tape and use your fingernails and the spare head of a broken usb cable? Otherwise, you're welcomed to borrow mine. I have enough electronics to outfit a lab. :P
