It should have came with two buttons, one for each switch type. I am 90% sure mine did.any ideas how to mod the printed button for the mini connector to work on the tact switch? basically, fit something in there to make the protrusion smaller
Yea it did. I didn't realize this at the time and only clear coated the one button. When putting the device together I figured out I did the wrong button. I've been using the unfinished button and it doesn't look nearly as good as the finished button.

The alps button just has an extended pin in the center of the fire button. Just make it the same depth as the one in the tact switch version. It shouldn't be that difficult to do. Do a depth measurement with a caliper and dremel away...
No need for a hakko. I just used a Weller 35watt with a fine tip. As for the switch, you get two options in the kit. No complaints with the options provided.Just paid for my DNA chips through mikepetros' co-op, stoke level:80%.
The plan is to get a hakko, mod my ZNA to carry a DNA25 then build two gDNA40s. Anyone want to talk me out of buying the Hakko soldering station on amazon?
Are the kits from livewire for the DNA40 as complete as the peko kit? I haven't even looked at them yet, do they have a good switch and all that? Would you replace the switch it came with with a different switch if you had it to do again?

I don't recall the cost of the Weller I used, it's at work and I didn't pay for it (Thank you work), but I believe the model is wp35. But I work as a electronics repair technician on CNC controls/servos etc and that Weller works good enough for me to make clean solder joints day in and day out on both my work related and personal projects.You're fine with that $40 weller on amazon huh? I want to use this project to springboard into other electronics projects so I thought that spending the $100 for the hakko would be a good idea. It's for me and my stepson and I'm sure we'll get use out of the soldering station beyond me making a couple ecigs. I want to be able to solder big brass washers to big wire for radio stuff in the future.
Good to know about the switches, thanks.
I'm making buttons out of copper, brass and aluminium, I have a 3.1 alps button, I need offer buttons and switches for measurements. If anyone had some spared they can part with please pm .
There the 3.1 alps button.
