Glad it was helpful to you. The trouble with that is that you are depending on the solder for strength, and we all know solder isn't all that strong. If you want to convince yourself of that, grab a piece of solder and pull it apart with your bare hands and then try to do the same iwth a copper wire. You really want a strong mechanical connection before you solder and then use the solder to lock it together and keep the oxidation out. Think of the solder as a conductive sealant. Cheers!
