great video Joe. soldering is not one of my strong points, where can I find soldering paste vs soldering wire?

That's some good stuff right there Joe. I'm gonna have to get some of that paste! Learn something new everyday!

I like it!

I have that exact same soldering iron! Anyone who says those lights on the iron are rediculous, has obviously never had to solder something really fiddly... believe me... those lights are amazing!

What temperature was the soldering iron set for?  I would like to try the paste but dont want the iron set too high.

This is just using an unregulated iron. Haven't found anything "too hot" yet. 

At home I have a temp regulated iron and I set it at 300F. The solder paste I use melts at 278F. By the way, plastic ties melt at ~320-400F so with the low melting point soldering paste, you can get in and get out without harming the ties pretty easily.
