Hey, everyone.
Remember the thread the other day about soldering PL-259s? Found the ideal tool for the purpose the other day at Wal-Mart: a Ronson "TechTorch" mini-torch. Butane-fueled, refillable, and best of all comes with a catalyst burner with soldering & heat tips, so you can shrink the heat shrink after you solder the connector. Circa $26 at the Wal-Mart. Ronson item # 80009. UPC 0-37900-80009-6.

I searched high and low at my local Walmart and couldn't find one. What
department was it in? BTW a websearch indicates that the Ronson number
is 82009.

I think what you probably need is the Walmart SKU off someone's sales slip. Then the store personnel can look it up.
