    Hey there everyone, I put this video together detailing some basic soldering methods. When I first started soldering years ago, I had no idea that I was doing it wrong. It took learning from an expert. Now, I solder wires sometimes just for added peace of mind and it is much easier.

    One thing i learned the hard and expensive way: dont buy cheap copper coated aluminum cables and wires. Aluminum cant solder for shit, pay a few bucks more for real copper core wires.

    Unfortunately, my entire house was wired with aluminum. Anything I do afterwards has always been copper.
