Default RE: Dean Connectors

I use a Weller 40 watt for most of my larger soldering jobs. It gets plenty hot enough to do the job. I tin the wire, AND put a small amount of solder on the Deans connector tab as well. The idea about squeezing a flat into the wire is good as is cutting a slot. Either will work.
