I need to solder a wire onto a circuit board but the hole is very small, and the wire won't fit all the way through. Can I untwine the individual threads and cut some of them off so the remaining threads can fit through the hole (e.g. cuting some of the other threads of the wire off to let it fit)?
The wire doesn't have to go through, it just ahs to make contact with the metal, and then be soldered in place.
O, I feel like such an idiot. So you can just solder it to the under side without going through the hole? (I'm 100% sure its a yes).
Whichever side is metal. You could even fill the hole with solder if it's a metal insert, if you want.
You can cut some of the wires off if you want, also.
