Guess I need a solder lesson... the solder is not melting into the wire. I have a hefty Craftsman that will melt the wire casing, and I just bought this smaller Weller (130A). Using the 1/4" spade tip, I can heat the wire until the solder melts, but it is not going into the wire mass. I stripped the wire... it's new and shiny. I moderately twisted the ends together - inline- and I placed the gun tip in the middle of the splice. I hold the solder at one end away from the tip. I wriggle it around and it finally melts. But it doesn't flow into the wires. It just blobs up and ends up on my work surface. I have tried wood and metal work surfaces. What am I doing wrong?

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
