It may be possible to take it apart and find the break in the wire and solder (your favorite thing) it back together. Bring it to Chads and we can have a look. I need some more stuff to fill up the day...
Well, all my soldering equipment is still in a pile on the floor from the last project, so I might as well use it again before I put it away. Do you think it'd be OK to use the spare used one while I fiddle with the other? Even with the break in the weather, the constant blazing heat trickling out of my vents is a bit oppressive.
