How To: Solder Large Gauge Wire.

Recommended Posts

yea thats what it is called, i couldnt remember. I asked my dad to pick me up a couple bottles of it at lowes when he went. It was really easy to use and convenient for me because i payed nothing cuz my mom already had this so.

Just to add to this thread, heat gun will work too instead of a torch. I have a butane torch at work that I use for soldering, but when I do ring terminals I usually just bust out the heat gun.

I.D.K. just a thought...

Wouldn't hurt.

I find that solder paste helps for damn near anything so go right on ahead and dip it.

also known as flux. its usually used on copper pipes.....idk about wire.

I've used it on wire and it sucks the solder in faster than Britney Spears can shave her head.

Or Pamela Anderson did Tommy Lee...

I heard soldering good you better electrical connection than crimping? Is that true? I did a couple soldering but it seem like I'm having a bit trouble with the wire jacket. It seem to be melting a bit.
