  1. Ummm…actually no. You probably can’t tell in the video but all connections were tined and heated to soldering temperature. It’s all good.

  2. I’d say that the cold-solder comment was made because you move nearly every connection AFTER the heat is removed. Bad example for others.

  3. I appreciate that. I’ve never had a cold-solder joint issue with slight movement of the connections before the solder has finished melting. But you are correct, the perfect soldering technique is to NOT move the components. Unfortunately my hands are not always completely steady.
