Do you have to solder wires together?
If you can’t use solder to join your wires, a splice that winds the wires together will get the job done just as well. Be sure to strip enough insulation from the wire to allow for several twists between the two pieces of wire.
How do you solder a wire without a solder?
What you need: a roll of electrical tape and two wires whose ends have been twisted together. First, lay the twisted part of the wires onto a strip of electrical tape. Wrap the tape around the wires tightly 5-6 times, making sure to cover up all the wire. Give your connection a tug to make sure it is strong.
How do you solder something really small?

Can I solder bare copper wire?
Be sure the soldering iron tip is thin, pointed (or flat) and very clean and tinned. Tinning is cleaning the wire and soldering it, leaving just enough solder to cover the bare wire (or soldering iron tip).
Can you solder 2 solid wires together?

Do you need flux to solder wires?
Yes, you need flux. Solder wire usually has flux in its core, but most still apply additional flux. I would figure out what specification of flux is in the solder wire you’re using and buy that type. To obtain the best results, always use extra flux!
Can you solder without flux?
Yes, you can solder without flux. While it is helpful in the process of soldering as the flux helps break down the oxides on the metal, it is not needed. Also, most solder nowadays come with a rosin core which does the job of flux helping breaking down oxides.
Can I use glue instead of solder?
There is no good substitute for soldering. No glue made will conduct electricity or hold as well as solder.
Is it OK to just twist wires together?
Before we condemn electrical tape, we should point out that for lower voltage, smaller wires, twisting them together and using the tape to insulate them is fine. This is because hobby wires and other low voltage and low-current wires pose little or no risk of electrocution or fire.
Do you twist wires before soldering?
If you are working with stranded wire, try twisting the ends to group the strands together and tinning the tips before soldering. Cut a piece of heat shrink to cover the exposed wires. Slide the heat shrink through one of the wires.
Can I solder with a lighter?
You can use anything that is able to heat a piece of metal up to the melting point of your solder (between 400°F / 200°C and 700°F / 370°C). Butane lighters work the best. But you can also use candles, oil lamps, alcohol burners, or even open camp fires.
