As a novice ham 40 years ago, I was taught that solder is for electrically connecting things that are already mechanically connected. I know that's old school, but I still lean that way.You have three options: one, make a mechanical connection for each 30 AWG wire to the bus such as wrapping the smaller wire around the bus wire; two, hold the wires in place with a clamp; three, use a small aluminum clip on heat sink to isolate the completed joints while working from one end to the other.
You are gonna think of it anyway now. Dentist or ER. The imagery will just come back to your mind and you'll be wondering how that seed got planted. Especially after they give you the pain meds. You'll be asking for all sorts of stuff that could be useful when building circuits.Got it all sorted out, thank you folks. As for the medical equipment, I won't be using those. If I'm ever in a terrible accident the last thing I want to think about while looking down at my hastily reconstructed body on an ER table is soldering, and that's what I'll think about if I start using that stuff.
