Also as Coach said tin everything.
I read this too a few time. I only do this on sensitive IC parts like I was referring to in earlier posts. That's to reduce the "heat time" of the primary object that maybe susceptible to heat damage.

Wires ain't.

By the way, here is a linke for more than what you will ever need at Crappy Tire.

25 Watts.

My soldering kit has seen dozens of miles of solder. You will see 50 feet in your LIFE-maybe
