Wire Soldering Made Easier

Soldering just got easier

Family Handyman

I do some minor soldering for hobbies, and I always have problems holding the wires together to solder them, even when I’m using alligator clips to hold things in place. What I’ve found works best is a simple washer. I clamp the wires on each side of the washer with alligator clips. The hole in the washer gives me nearly 360-degree access to the solder joint. — Joseph Johnson
