Solderless Wire Fastening


Introduction: Solderless Wire Fastening

About: I am, most definitely older than 00010101 and to put it simply, still curious about nearly everything :-) I then tend to read and/or experiment in those areas - when I have the time.. . My two "specialty...

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.

    Go ahead, I know it always make ME feel better (unless some goes up you nose....that can be nasty at times....) ;-)

    Use your fingers to clamp your nose shut next time. :-) What about a instructible for that? :-!

    I would feel like I was suffocating then.....I'd rather pull the odd spaghetti noodle out of my nose than try to hold it closed ;-)

    I've never heard of anyone that wants to be sick, but to each his own ;-)

    I never wanted to be sick, until I read your "I'd rather pull the odd spaghetti noodle out of my nose than try to hold it closed"

    A weak stomach is not something people could accuse me of......I could tell some stories....but then, you would not want to hear them ;-)

    I had chemotherapy back in 1993.

    I did not spew up once. I did not lose weight like they said.

    In fact, I saw it as a holiday, and I gained weight, as the treatment was at night, during the day, I had to do something, so I volunteered to help, put away linen, tidy the patients kitchen etc.

    And I read books, and I left the unit and found the rehabilitation unit for disabled people, where there was a neat woodwork shop, and of cause, I did some projects. All unofficial because I had not been referred. But of cause, I knew the carpenter in charge. Years earlier, I had rebuilt his woodworking lathe, during another admission.

    I was Aspie like then, that got me a single room in Oncoligy. I felt too confined in a four bed cubical, with 3 TVs going, the back of one TV hanging over my bed.

    Come to think of it, the rule in that woodwork shop was you MUST close the door to the corridor before starting up the power saw,

    After all, it was in an old operating theatre!

    its all gone now, pulled down, and the new regional hospital built on it. They used explosives to destroy the bunker where the cobalt was kept.

    The linear accelerator (X-ray cancer zapper) was in a modem building in the court yard, of concrete for shielding.

    Where do you think they put the hospital chaplains?

    In a relocatable office, ON TOP of the linear accelerator building.

    Is this so they'd have a Moses type of glow about them ? :-)

    Or maybe because they wanted to be the first to go, if anything happened.
