Default Need soldering help

I have started building a Zen9 but have hit a little problem . This amp uses the the LD1014D that is in a To251 package is there an EASY way to solder leads to those little pins as I see some constructors of this amp have done ?

Strip the wire to about half the pin's length. Tin both the lead and the wire
to make the soldering quicker and easier. Clamp both in a jig so there's no
relative motion, with the wire touching the lead in the proper position
(parallel to it, on top). Solder the wire to the pin.

Thanks for the tip. After looking at that device I went ahead and ordered it.

You'll still need steady hands to do the soldering. I'd also recommend
63/37 rosin core solder, which works much better than 60/40 solder.
Around 20 gauge is good for most through hole work.
