When an apprentice in the 60's, we were encouraged to wire anything that may vibrate with a single coil/loop of wire just after the connection and before any loom. This I suppose was an attempt to get the loop to absorb some of the vibration.
I must admit that in some of my recent soldered connections I've failed to do that.

Doesnt a solder tinned end 'grip' better in a connection and prevent some of the cabling from fracturing when tightened in certaian connectors?

You never get to where you want to go if you only travel on sunny days.
