    sorry, but that wouldn’t cut it here(nice to see the heat shrink tubing to cover up the poor workmanship). Use dies but if one wanted to use solder, you would put the terminal in a vise,m heat it up, add solder , and THEN while it’s still fluid, push the wire into it–this will NOT ruin the wire wrap(then put your heat shrink on). Better yet is to use crimp dies; you want to get the outside of the copper wires unexposed to air; (the electrons/conductivity runs mainly on the outer surface of the copper, not inside it)
