Patient presents absolute lack of sensitivity on one of it’s moving members, can’t tell it’s position, open or closed. X-Ray reveals broken blood supply and nerve:
Closeup, it’s really a mess:
Boss prognosis: Irrepairable.
Me: Nope, it can be done.
Boss: No, it’s too close to the base.
Me: Watch me.
Inductive sensor is sedated:
I carefully cut the sheath of the cables:
Exposing as much as possible (later I removed as many resin as I could up to the metal).
Cable is completely destroyed, it is missing like half a millimetre of wires, all broken in pieces.
Apply some solder paste and heat with a really fine tip, repeat as needed to extend the solder up the cable in both directions.
There, it’s not pretty, but will hold.
Cover in shrinkwrap:
Same, expose, apply paste, heat, repeat:
Much better, ain’t it?
I did the same for the third cable, but it is pointless to show it.
Aaaaand, of course, it worked.
BTW, this post is funnier if you actually saw the movie. ;)
