Default RE: Dean Connectors

I brought the batteries into work and had the controls guy show me how it's done, what solder to use and the resin. He has mulitple sizes of Weller units to choose from. He did it just like Pete said (pre-tin both components and then bring them together). He appears to use the solder to conduct the heat into the part, rather than heating the part and adding solder. Seems like the industry ought to standardize on a connector. Preferably, for guys like me, a connector that you can crimp onto the wire first to make soldering easier!
