I'm using pin headers to solder wires onto, so I can plug them into the headers on my Arduino. This works quite well, but it's quite easy to heat the pins too much and they move slightly in the PVC strip. Am I just heavy-handed with the soldering, or is there a better way of doing this?
Soldering wires onto header pins should only be an act of desperation.
True enough, but we are a desperate bunch!
