soldering for halogen repair
I'm replacing ceramic sockets for two 60w halogen pendant lights (out of a line of 5 pendants total) that hang from 20 feet above. These sockets were a major PITA to locate, even from the manufacturer (Artemide).
I need to replace a portion of damaged (burned) wire in one of them, so I purchased some 18 gauge "high heat" wire from a lamp store. What should I use to wrap the solder joint? Any special tape or something else? Thanks much.
