    Yeah John I've been toying with that kind of idea for a couple of days now and I think it's gonna have to come to it, I agree option 2 sounds inviting, I'll let you know how it goes, thanks to the both of you

    In fact, would either of you have an opinion about using a small dab of solder instead of the tin can from John's option 1? I feel like it might be a bit easier to remove if the need should arise?

    That'd work too, I've used that to make sure parts stays together couple times.

    OK, well I just finished soldering and it's worked a treat. I guess we'll see how long term it is, but I think it should do the trick for now at least! In case it helps anyone in the future, I attached a couple of pictures of the soldering job in question. Thanks a lot for all the tips, much appreciated!
