Yar, it doesn't take much, and too much can be bad as it wicks up into the wires and makes them easier to break. That was an excellent tutorial on how to do it the right way. I used to make up wiring harnesses and panels for airplanes for a living, for Lockheed, Bombardier, and Boeing. Thanks Farmall.

Nothing wrong with a little over-engineering bevo. I suck at soldering but usually do a lineman splice and cover it with solder. I got it from the NASA technical manual so figured it must be a decent method.


Farmall, the FIL looks like he's having a good time. i hope I'm still at it if I make it to his age.
