    Yeah, if you can, on braided wire a soldered connection is the best option.



    How about we disagree on what brand of deodorant works best? LOL

    LOL.... Yes, braided is best. Though I have soldered solid before, really depends on what's it's being used for. If it's a high draw application & used for home and commercial code, then as ReefSparky stated NO!

    Hey CJ. Nice looking work. So are you joining the wire end to end, overlapping, or incorporating the strands somehow first?
