Yes, yes, yes.....I have seen the repaired switches go bad
again over time as well, normally the two terminals are
just butted up against each other and then soldered. Using
some wire to wrap around the two terminals and then
soldering them is a great idea....

Maybe we can make a fixture to electrically spot weld the
two terminals together....going to be a tight fit
though........oh never mind.....
