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 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.
