    I agree with Pinski1. Those soldered joints ain't up to spec.

    For that kind of work I use a cheap 100W Ironside Soldering iron with the thinnest point I could buy for it.
    (for heavier work I have other points, up and including rather heavy copper blocks, electrocoated with nickel)

    I'm tempted to buy the 150W brother of it...

    I also use custom made teflon clamps to keep the connector pairs in a solid lock. (handy if you can make those yourself from billet or sheet)

    Another investment I can advice, heatshrink in the right dimensions. It can hide a lot of sins.
    The alternative is hotglue.

    Those few extra watts seem to have made adifference.

    Sorry if its looks a bit blurred, but myphone didn't want to focus on it.

    Shocking what a "good" iron can do compared to the really awful ones

    Finally done wiring for the drive, tested the linear just to see if I got the wiring right and made the little safety light so I know the robot is live.

    All I need to do now is tape the wires, make some more safety lights, test the weapon a bit more, order some armour and anything else I might have forgot.

    Looks nice and messy :P Seriously though, good work so far.

    Removable links perhaps? I can't see them in the photo.
