Solders like copper...
I have built a lot of slot car chassis. And piano wire , soldered with 60-40 takes a heck of a beating....

So you use normal lead solder with it then and normal heat from soldering iron?

Yea, A good iron with a wide tip keeps it hot...A ceramic soldering stone works for a jig...
