First pointer is watch out for junk solder.Dont buy 5.00 solder..Junk solder is stiff on the spool,hard to bend.Melts with a gritty texture.Use a solder paste,NOKORODE is still sold.Material you solder has to be clean,dont touch any surface after you have cleaned it.Wire must be super clean, cut back to brite wire.Crimped on battery charger clips often develope poor connections that heat up while the battery is charging . Clean and solder any connections that heat.Use copper clips,real copper not the coper plated junk sold now.If you are fooling with soldering pennies into starter switches now that new pennies are zinc with copper plate.They solder but zinc is a poor conductor.Im not sure why you are soldering pennies into starter swiches but sounds liks a dumb idea.On big jobs where you use a propane torch you need a special tip with a copper head that fits on the torch head.If a flame touches the flux it justs burns up.You can collect pine pitch to use as flux.Do not use lead free solder on general soldering.50/50 solder is best for most jobs.60/40 solder is used in electronics.Silver bearing solder is a different matter.I have used it on band saw blades.Very expensive stuff.TO sum up.Surfaces have to be clean and dont touch.Hot carbon soldering uses equipment that most of you wont have.
