Absolutely remove the Cardas end caps.... and Thanks Duster!

I can't remember for sure, but I think I have the long rather than the short version Cardas. So the soldering point is further away from the teflon. This would affect the scenario somewhat versus the short version shown in Duster's original post.

Thinking ahead further, the longer would also let me add extra aluminum nuts to both sides of the barrel for soldering. Then remove the nuts before soldering the other end of the wire.

Thank you Duster for the OP and for explanations that help us put logic into practice.



Edit: I still have and use WBT silver solder with lead. Lower melting point.
