Default How to Build a Saddle Pack

I've searched around, and haven't found a good source yet. I'm wanting to take my stick packs and build them into saddle packs. Does anyone have a good link or instructions for how to build saddle packs? Thanks

Ok, first and foremost, I've done this, when disassembling the stick, make sure you sand down the little indents it might have, cover it with flux, then put some solder on the iron, and tin the ends.


That should get you through the rest, I do suggest a building jig btw, it's only about 5-10 dollars and it makes it much easier than not having it, I should know :-D

Oh, and a side note, DO NOT TOUCH THE BAR WHILE SOLDERING it gets extremely hot in 1-2 seconds from touching the iron to it(not sure about an iron, but it did with my 200w gun :P)
