You say Sodder I say Solder…

29 December 2009

I noticed there was a very bad buzz on the Sony C37a when I first used it. It seemed to get worse when I wobbled the connector at the end so I called Vintage King Audio, where i bought the mic, and the tech guy there gave me some instructions. “Can you sodder?” he said “Wha??” “Can you sodder?” ┬áhe repeated “Sodder!?? What is sodder?? Solder?” “Yes” he said “Sodder”. I made this video to document my first “Sodder”

    Gosh….that looked well complicated. Videos speeded up always look that little bit more hypnotic but that was genuinely impressive.

    I need to fix the LCD screen on my Canon. It’s cracked. I wonder if it is possible.

  4. Impressed! You even have your anti-static wrist strap…good man!
    And clever use of the ubiquitous Blu-Tack.

    Yeah, I have the same problem with the “sodder” pronunciation…just can’t stop myself using the “correct” word!

    I love watching people working manually on something. This is magic/ magnetic.

    It’s interesting that Americans pronounce the word sold ‘correctly’, but by adding an e and an r, it magically becomes ‘sodder’!!
