Part two of my discussion will be on how to change a egg/bullet from one controller to another.


Well you found a bullet that has some great thumpy vibes to it, only problem is the controller that drives it only has two settings. You have another controller that is infinitely adjustable but the egg sucks bad. Or maybe you could not fix the battery problem with your controller.




Guess what, your buddy Tim has an answer for you. Why not splice the egg to the controller you like?
Let’s look at how that can be done. I am going to take the egg from the black controller and spice it to the white one.

We will need the following supplies-



A soldiering gun, flux core soldier, black electrical tape, some type of wire cutters, shrink tubing, butt connecters’, wire strippers, and a crimper (for the butt connecters’).

For those that do not have a soldiering gun, I will show how to use Butt connecters to splice the wires.

Agreed! That tube of Dielectric grease will cost $10, what did the vibe cost you? Cheap insurance, especialy for those vibes that are only splash proof.

I don't think I have ever used butt connectors before. I'm a pro with a soldering gun though .

First, we need to cut the wires from the controller. Since the wires are always to short, think ahead and cut the wires close to the bad egg and close to the bad controller. This will give you twice as much wire/length.



Next we need to split the two wires, this can be done by grabbing one wire with your right finger and thumb and the other wire with your left finger and thumb. Pinch the center with your nails and pull away from each other. You can also use a sharp knife but be careful not to cut your self, please.



Now we need to strip the wires of their insulation (four wires), use the wire strippers. Find the right size in the strippers for the size wire you have. Usually it will be smaller that the wire. If wire comes out with the insulation, you need to use the next size up. Take off about a half an inch of the insulation.

You can use a lighter to burn the insulation off, but you may burn your fingers. Trust me, that’s what I do. Ha-ha

I'm pro with one for stained glass, but I've never done anything useful like fixing a bullet lol

I have some nightmare soldering stories. But I recently got a soldering gun and plan to start from square one.

OH cool! My aunt does that! Such an art I learned fixing and installing radios, but I've used soldering for much more than that. I want to learn stained glass though! I love the look of it.

(this would also be a great way to extend a cord that is too short. just saying)

I don't have any wire bullets right not to try this on, but I just want to say I've been following along with fascination. This is so, so, SO freaking cool!

You bet, that was the second reason I did it to that egg.

I almost burn my eye out one time, another time trying to soldier with the wrong soldier, a candle, and a pencil. Lots of lose / lose situations.

Now we have four wires that have been stripped of their insulation.



At this point it is a good idea to test the egg and the new controller. Twist the wires together, one from set of wires then the other set. Make sure the two wires do not touch each other. Place some batteries in the controller and turn on. There should not be a problem with polarity but you can try to connect the wires in reverse to see if there is any difference. If you notice a difference mark the wires so you can make the final connection the way you like.

We now cut two pieces of the shrink tubing about an inch long. Slide one piece on to one wire, say from the controller. Then take one of the wires from the egg and twist the two ends together, like a bag tie.




Now we are ready to soldier the connection. I try to find something to hold the wires off the workspace.



When the soldiering gun is hot enough, touch the tip to the wires to get them hot. After a few seconds, you can apply the soldier. When the soldier “wicks” into the wires, you are done. Take away the gun and allow the wires to cool. The soldier should be smooth and shiny.



When cool, you can now slide the heat shrink over the connection. Use a lighter or hair drier to shrink the tubing tight. (Folding the wire down away from the heat shrink will make it easier to slide on.)





This the finished connection with the heat shrink, shrunk-

This is a pretty sweet workshop! If only I had a soldiering gun

Luckily I don't need to switch any bullets, yet

Green = EF higher visibility on the forum and especially in the discussion and events. New people and guests especially don't already know everyone. (Good Question)
