I am not going to argue the soldering point, but I am also never going to solder a wire connection on my airplane with the main reason for this being that type of repair is not FAA approved and would ground my plane. Also I do NOT recommend nor will I ever recommend someone buy one of those cheap $10 nutcracker type crimpers as you say I recommend. The tool I use and recommend is the ratcheting kind as shown in my posted links above. I have never had a crimped connection fail using this type of crimping tool, but as you have stated with your experiences YMMV.
