    Anyone notice in the illustration that the final turns on the ends of the wires are going in a different direction than the first turns?

    Also looked like a cold joint, you would be surprised how much cold solder joints, or bad solder joints cost NASA, or the AF.

    I've never used solid-core wire before, that's very interesting ! but for multi core wire I prefer this method .. Sean's Jaguar Tech Pages - A Solder Splicing Procedure near the bottom of the page has more pictures

    I've used this method for years, but never had a need to splice solid core wire.

    We had a lot of customers in the space shuttle program; it is absolutely amazing how much effort and testing NASA puts in every process to prevent failures. BTW a solder joint is about at the bottom of their approved list of making connections. NASA specs make 10CFR50 look easy.
    There is no spoon.
