Currently I am soldering points to scale width PC ties and my big concern is reliability over the long term. As I am selling these I want the customer to get his moneys worth and not have to resolder point rails every year.
Until something comes along that is better what I am doing is cutting small brass or nickel silver squares about 1/16 in width and using them to re enforce the point rail connection. I also use silver solder at that location exclusively. The increase in strength of the solder and the addition of the sheet metal has made the point rail connection much stronger.
So if you still using the soldered to tie point techique you might want to try this to add some longevity to your point rail connections.
