RE: Cardas CCBP Unplated Copper Binding Posts

I wonder if replacing the caps with a row of aluminum nuts would also help dissipate the heat while soldering.

It might well. That would, I'd have thought, make it inadvisable to try. Would it not be better to mount the post in some form of insulation (such as a scrap of medium-to-heavy PVC cable sleeving) so the heat is kept local and the joint made quickly?

Can't hurt to try.

Hopefully not but I've damaged things (many years ago, you understand) by taking too long to make the joint.
