So the big issue with soldering aluminum is the quick oxidation of the metal. I was replacing all the wires on my build so I didn't want to chance it. To much heat and you start melting components around what you are trying to solder.
I would call the folks at Kapp and see what they have, I don't remember specfically what I used or if their product lineup has changed. It wasn't expensive at all and it made soldering really easy.
Copper wires have a lot more mass than aluminum. I would stay away and stick with aluminum.
ok. so if mine look attached there is no reason to resolver?
or at one point i thought i saw a recommendation to /melt/ the existing solder and just let it set up again (for some reason i don't remember...).
