I just couldn't get the conductor through the hole on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board). In the end I went into work and used the PCB microscope. Only to discover that the plated-through hole wasn't... a hole, that is. It was so badly malformed that there wasn't even a hint of a hole there
I'm hoping the chap whose switchpack it is can swap it with somebody who doesn't contemplate doing the Ultimate Remote mod because the malformed plated-through hole has no bearing on normal use of the powerfolds.
I'm also hoping that I don't see the like again
