I appreciate y'all's comments but keep in mind this is about the wire glue product; your experience and your comment about this particular product. I know as well that soldering is a very effective technique for joining metal components.
Why not solder? You still haven't answered this question.
The resistivity is much higher than copper, as much as 500000 times higher,
but for short distances it still comes out to low ohms.
The test with the two wires was to twist them together about 5 turns,
then dip the turns into the wire glue container and let dry. After drying,
the joint measures zero ohms, but jumps up a little if you pull on the two
wires a bit. It jumps up as high as 1 ohm sometimes, but then jumps back
down. This does not happen with a straight non broken wire, which tells
me that a joint made with wire glue subject to movement may change the
resistance a little, so you would have to be aware of that. The resistance
doesnt change much however, so with a guitar pickup it would most likely
work if you twist the wires together first.
I propose a test: do one set of pickups with wire glue (twist wires together
first) and try it out with the amplifier of your choice. Remember that you also
at least need some insulation over the wire glue too though, to prevent shorts
to other joints in the same area.
The pickup dc resistance is over 1k ohms, so adding 1 ohm in series with that
isnt going to make a heck of a lot of difference so the wire glue should work
for the guitar pickups. As i said before though, i would let dry for a few days
and then coat with 5 minute epoxy for strength and added insulation.
If the wires are large it shouldn't be a problem. The difficult things about soldering is...well nothing really. It's just precision if the joint needs to be small.
Hey thanks dude. But how do you manage to hold the wires? Will they stick right away?
I asked someone on ebay, about this epoxy thing, who used the product and she said putting a bit of epoxy glue over the wire glue to strengthen didn't do anything good.
