Iso-Tip 7700 – Welding Plastics
We had a customer that we built a part for and the drawing called out a small breathing or bleed hole. After we made the parts the customer decided they didn’t want the small hole. The customer was out of the country so shipping the parts back to rebuild them was not a great option… or at least it would have cut into my year-end bonus a bunch. We solved the problem by using a flat knife like tip on the 7700 cordless soldering iron and welding the hole closed. Try using a 7700 next time you have a plastic part that’s broken or needs modification, it works slick.
