I have a number of chassis fans in my computer which have cables that are way too long. I've been wanting to cut them, but wanted to make sure that I knew what I was getting into before proceeding.
I was thinking that I would
- Strip back wire where I'd cut.
- After tinning, etc., solder the wire back together.
- Find a way to wrap back up the exposed wire.
Is this generally speaking how this is done? I've never soldered before and am looking to get my hands dirty in an easy project.
