    Thanks, Light Bringer! -

    That would be very useful.

    Thanks for the wisdom!
    It all makes sense, especially the part about repairing mistakes.

    I never thought of that - thanks for the reminder!

    Thanks, Light Bringer. I have a 1/8" grinding tool thingy for my Dremel, but that still seems a bit too big. What attachment would you recommend?

    That's just what I needed to know. I've seen these type connectors in the service. I have reservations about the pogo pins, as well.
