    Found these in a game I recently bought. Any you ever soldered with a match? Seems convenient, but a little risky.

    Looks like, it would only melt the solder strip , not heat the wires and let the wires melt the solder , not a good bond.

    Seems like something that an operator might have had with them to do an on-the-fly repair that would need to be redone later by an experienced tech with a soldering iron.

    yup, your both right, cheep quick way to create a poor solder joint.
    if you use a stick match, or a lighter, more heat time = better connection.

    Using that open flame just after dousing any contacts with TV Tuner Cleaner could create some excitement.

    I tried them once and they didn't really work for me. I forgot until right now I still have some strips sitting around.

    Great idea in a pinch for an operator though, might work well enough for a quick temporary fix.
