This is a good writeup. You have shown that by doing a little work yourself, a lot of money can be saved. It also shows the manufacturers are making these devices on the cheap. Not enough solder is used and breaks after a few years due to vibration.

One question though, why use flux paste? Solder comes with flux in the middle. Heat up the solder, the internal flux does the same thing.
