    I'd prefer not to clip so if I get my hands on another fender power cord I could replace the ACE hardware one and keep the chassis nice and clean.
    With a solder sucker You have get the solder melted or soupy B4
    it works right? With a braid and flux if You can get a little bit melted
    at a time,And get it to stick to the braid I think it will work better.
    Gonna take some time to do

    it depends. maybe try removing ther ground lug from the chassis first. i suspect the chassis is acting like a heat sink.
    or, just clip em, and make a new connection somehow. PM or yahoo me if you need anymore help.

    You can try a desoldering braid and a bunch of Flux. It will take some time but you'll get it. Cheaper that buying a solder gun.

    The Solder From Hell

    Iwas trying to replace the power cord in my silverface princeton because it was fraying and the ground plug broke off. Opened it up and went to desolder the leads, but I couldn't get them hot enough to melt, I had my soldering iron on 30w and at best the stuff got soft enough to indent but I could not for the life of me melt it.

    Any Ideas?
