Hi leggolon.....we can see you are jig bending & jig soldering the ???? 1/16"brass wire.......& it is progressing well  :-))

However I suspect you are using a soldering iron........  >>:-( <*<

Could I suggest you consider one of those baby gas butane torches & a liquid soldering flux fluid...not a paste........

The soldering naturally still requires the jig setup....but produces a greatly improved smoothness in the actual soldered joint    O0
