Very interesting thread, there are many good answers and also a few bad ones. After reading them all I would have to say that 61bone has given the best answer out of the whole bunch. He makes a good mechanical connection, then a good solder job, and wraps it up nice. All the solder is really doing is holding the mechanical connection together and protecting it from coming apart. When done properly using his method all of the current is flowing throgh the good mechanical connection and the mechanical connection is secure and should last indefinately.
