Soldering wire on through-hole pad

Is there an IPC standard or other suggestion for soldering 18 gage wire "ON TOP" of a through-hole pad?


Experts Comments

Not sure if I wouild call it a standard, I think it may be more of a guideline. See some info at: http://www.circuitrework.com/guides/6-1.shtml
