Maine sail, that was all very interesting, I learned a lot by reading it. You even answered the question I had in mind when you showed what the badly crimped connection looked like when you cut it open - thank you for going the extra mile, it was like watching myth busters.

Question - Did you say above whether it was a good idea to solder after you made a good crimp or to leave the good crimp alone ? I have been doing crimps and then soldering, what is your opinion on that ?

One odd thing you showed me was that the bad crimp wasn't as bad as I thought it would be inside, I actually imagined worse.

What are you pretending not to know ?
