    Soldering a DB9 connector is the most un-fun:( I've had in a long time. But it's done and my motor doesn't over heat anymore.

    My fingers hurt and eyes blur just thinking about soldering DB9s. I wish Gecko picked a different connector.

    It's not that bad to do, you just have to have a good soldering iron, skills, immunity to pain and at least a third hand...

    I said "at least" a third hand, I know what you do with the fourth while soldering a DB9 connector... you navigate on the OpenBuilds website looking at some extrusions... :p
