I bought a some devices for my current E14 project that came with 30 AWG pigtails.
The pigtails were about 3 inches long with about a 1/16th inch stripped on the end.
All the different techniques of joining 2 ends of wire before soldering look great, until you are working with 28 or 30 AWG wire.
I did what I could to make a perpendicular leg with the pigtail wire. The extension wire I stripped a bit further, enough to make a hook, and kinda crimped the hook around the bent wire.
The third hand clamp was absolutely necessary. Once the wires were hanging from their almost hooks and sorta loosely crimped, I touched with solder and aligned.
Even being quick and careful, the wire insulation was right in there with the hot solder joint and in some cases contaminating the solder joint.
Anyone have detailed experience with the integrity of a small wire solder joint contaminated with insulation ?
