    Car and boat often different considerations. If you have the time and can do the soldering remotely in a vice it is superior.

    What's the go with Americans saying "sodder" and "soddering"?

    I suppose it's like "erb" for herb?

    Hey Don
    Those crimpers are designed for uninsulated lugs and would require you to maybe double crimp an insulated lug, as a true insulated lug crimp tool crimps the wire ferrel section at the same time as the insulated section

    Maybe get another pair like these, can never have enough toolsWire terminal Crimper recommendation

    It isn't. Tinned wires and terminals in a marine environment of course. I've discussed why crimping is superior previously especially in an environment with vibration. Look at any vehicle from cars to aircraft and the connections for wiring are mechanical.

    Ok I will go an pull out those 10 year old silver solder joints subject to the marine environment of vibration, heat, cold , condensation, salt and start again with my crimping tool.

    I have seen many crimps done well fail with enough time, especially large multi strand to agree that crimping is superior. Crimping offers superior speed and practicality in terms of in vehicle crimping etc. Manufactueres use crimping because its quick and cheap and reliable when they do it with machines. Most people who crimp dont also use heat shrink which doesnt help. Also crimp ends are often quite a bit bigger than the wire meaning any heat shrink you do use doesnt fit as tightly or snugly onto the wire.

    When a crimp is done correctly the pressure welds the terminal to the wire. Believe what you will, I spent time being trained in mechanical connections and soldering for military applications and a mechanical connection done correctly is superior.

    For a start Electricity don't know the difference between Marine , Automotive , Household , Aviation , Underground or even Space exploration.

    Secondly Silver Solder is NOT recommended for electrical connections, Silver solder is for metalwork / mechanical soldering . Lead/Tin is for electrical work.

    If your style of electrical connections is working for you , that great , keep up the good work. The last LandRover I bought had a mass of aftermarket Electricals done with twist joins & insulation tape . Served the Previous owner well no doubt.
