Fun with Solder

Last night I broke out the soldering iron (and by broke out, I mean broke it out of the packaging because I haven't used a soldering iron since 7th grade) and made a custom interface cable to connect my MK Pano Machine to my Canon DSLR.... Holy Crap! the thing actually works!! Not only does the cable work, (I'm surprised as this was my practice one - I have the parts to make another one) but it was fun to make. I'm thinking now that I should revisit some of my back issues of "Make" magazine and seriously consider making some of the projects.
