I’ve was just soldering, and sorta came across the idea of a thread for sharing small tips…
Not like ‘this motor is better than that motor’ just the small stuff.
This soldering technique is really what spawned the idea for me, so I guess here is the first tip:
if you have to solder two wires together, don’t just simply push them together. Wrap a thin strand of speaker wire (because it is flexible enough to mold and will hold its shape) around your pushed together wires. This will make them held together really well, even before you solder them (see it supporting the motor with one wire! I know you aren’t supposed to hold a motor by the wire, but for 3 seconds to snap a pic I think it will live…)
