Safest way to solder multiple wires to one point?

Post by a3k4 » Fri Jul 22, 2016 9:28 am

What is the safest/best way to solder all of my ground (or power wires) wires to a single point on a board? Use a distribution joint to a single wire, then solder that wire to the board?

You could do that yes but maybe use a board like @Wermy did in his videos. I was thinking of making such a board and put it on OSHPark so it can useful for everyone and is one sided so no worries of shorting anything on the underside.

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

Good idea! This is where @Wermy talks about using a prototyping board. I found these snappable protoboards on Sparkfun which are pretty neat but expensive, also Banggood has a bunch of options.
