So, I bought a nice little 16GB key chain thumb drive at Wally World.
Well, after several times in and out of my pocket under stress the 'axle' that the thing swings on broke on one side.
I broke the other side trying to take it apart so now I have a thumb drive with no protector and a useless key chain protector right?
Enter the Weller BP860MP!
This little battery powered iron saved the day with the help of a broken syringe and some Yankee ingenuity.
Basically I had the end of the syringe plunger that you press on.
I inserted it into the thumb drive/protector pivot hole and placed on a flat surface.
Then I melted the other end over the pivot point.
I touched up the white plastic with a sharpie.
I have attached pics for your viewing pleasure.
When it inevitably breaks in the future I can do it again.
