Default For those clueless about soldering....

I've used a simple soldering technique introduced years ago. A very small piece of thin solder similar to tiny bandages for small cuts about 3/8" X 1" wrapped around twisted bare (clean) wires and a match was useful for electrical soldering away from an ac outlet and soldering iron. Fast forward and we have portable butane torches with a soldering tip for complete portability in field repairs. This presumes most people are already familiar with basic soldering techniques. For the truly clueless and those not wanting to learn soldering, a new product may help and provide virtually a professional appearance after some trial and error period of experimenting. Be warned though. Soldering in any form still requires some semblance of clean copper wires for solder and rosin to flow and coat each bare wire of a twisted set before solder can adhere to provide electrical and mechanical strength.

This appeared on facebook and here's a link; https://afrui.com/collections/hot-de...Y-D3-JwFGJMAZU. The video should convince anyone that virtually everyone should be able to solder wires together and insulate the connection with shrink tubing. For auto repairs and tight spaces, this may be one of the best solutions for fast and easy soldering without needing skills other than flicking a Bic or striking a match. For those using fire, beware of nearby plastic rugs catching on fire. No torch is needed. This product appears to use a lower temperature melting point solder with rosin shaped into a small bushing covered in see thru shrink tubing.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
