Very clever!
FWIW something I learned the hard way on clutch cables is to NOT let lead or solder wick up the cable or it will be brittle and short lived. The tips below from Flanders are very helpful. I didn't want to invest in a solder pot so I used a black iron pipe cap (clamped so as do avoid disaster) and melted the solder by heating the cap with a propane torch. The solder stays molten for quite awhile so there is no rush on dipping the cable end...

Same as always, different ways to skin a cat.
Got any pics or information on the old ways?
I've always used crimp connections on wire used for pulling stuff.
So this is a new idea for me in soldering it.
I used an old throttle cable to fix my "pickerupper" stick which came with a string pull.
The crimp fitting worked but later came loose and I haven't put that on my list to refix yet.
