Only if you can't live without it... I can, but I'm very grouchy in the

The socket is the only bit I've not tried (haven't got any to hand, but
that's easy to fix). Where I mainly find the problem is getting the
connecting wire into the right place & actually getting it to solder in in
less time than it takes the plastic to melt...

Be where it's at, B-Racing!
