Solderless Wire Fastening





Introduction: Solderless Wire Fastening

This video shows how one can take 2 stranded wires, separating one into two sections, and braid them together for a very strong connection, in the event that no soldering equipment or power is available. It makes a great temporary connection, that can be soldered as is later on.

This is a great way to join two wires if you have no power for a soldering iron. No soldering iron available, no solder available, or no way to get a soldering iron into the area to solder the wires. BTW: the three sections of wire are placed parallel and facing the same direction, folding alternating outer wires inwardly to form a braid.

    No, but I have crocheted hanging baskets...

    I stationed it by the window, next to the one I used as a template :-)


    That will explain your confusion, Aspies like Goodhart and me, talk opposites.

    But he did not know the joke at my end, when I see women knitting, I say they are tangling up wool. Anyway, I do very find hand sewing/stitching , to relax.

    And his wire fastening, looked very like braiding ribbons.

    Go and look at his cheese block racing, we are planning a world championships, me in NZ, v him in the USA. His microwaved potatoes, or Tater (Spud in NZ) is great too.

    That explains it. :)

    Glad to be of help, two opposites make a right.
