SWMBO has a moderately expensive hair dryer from Ion Professional
Products, Model 301100 that has broken cord right at the handle.
If'en I could get it apart, I could cut a couple inches of, resolder and
it'd be good to go...there's the problem in the "if'en"... :(
There were two screws in the handle and a couple tiny ones at the in and
outlet screens that hold the case together. AFAICT there's nothing else
mechanical. I can split the handle and pull but the top seam and most
of that along the barrel bottom do not seem to want to separate.
On the most outside of chances, anybody's missus/daughters/whomever got
one of these buggers and managed to make a repair?
I can pry w/ a small bar and it sorta' moves the pieces but I'm feared
to try much more brute force else't it'll break in two.
Any other "secrets" have used to separate such animals? Is there any
chance't they actually spot glued these things together? The front and
rear screws were miniscule...
I repair those (wall wart transformers when they fail) They are glued
together. I squeeze them in a vise slightly and the glued areas pop apart.
