Soldering Iron question.
« on: March 19, 2015, 03:46:00 PM »
Ok guys, I got a question. I just received a new soldering station and the iron has a female connector like this, http://www.e-voron.dp.ua/catalog/017267 . My question is..... Is there an adapter so I could use my Hakko 907 iron that has a male connector like this, http://m.ebay.com/itm/350391053819?_mwBanner=1 ? I really dont want to replace the connector on the station being i havent even turned it on yet but im open to whatever suggestions you might have. Thanks guys!

I would need a female (into the station) to a female (for the iron), like this....... https://www.google.com/search?q=5+pin+female+to+female+dmx&biw=360&bih=592&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=jn8LVeLSLJD_ggSut4PgAw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg#imgrc=ccmyYgJEsm5ygM%253A%3B_4m-8lNAQ8xQ9M%3Bhttps%253A%252F%252Feventhorizon-srv.com%252Fecommerce%252Fos%252Fcatalog%252Fimages%252Fproduct_images%252Fevent_horizon%252FFX5-FX5-HDMX1-2.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fquoteimg.com%252Fdmx1-jpg%252F2%252F%3B700%3B560

Holy crap thats a long link! Anyway, ive been looking and im not sure what the name is to be exact. I seen DIN, DMX, nd XLR but cant find a female to female for the life of me. Im starting to think im gonna have to start taking this thing apart and replacing the connector, which is something i didnt want to do but i really want to use my 907 iron. Hmmmmm........ maybe put the connector from the new iron on my 907. That might be the way to go, now that i think about it.

Just buy two of the ones i linked to they are only like $5.00 and build your own cable with two females  :icon_wink: dont we all wish   but any way shouldn't be much to it and its a totally non invasive operation. And length is up to you this way. yaou can also use both irons without changing  a thing other than plugging it in.

First make sure they are compatible. If they aren't, some major harm could happen.
