Here are some pages from the 9th Edition of the American Electrician's Handbook.

They show and explain how conductors were prepared, spliced and soldered in days past.

I use the #153 a lot when I am splicing small stranded wires (soldered). It allows you to slide a small diameter shrink tube over it for a very smooth splice in the run of a wire. When I am using fixture wires I will wrap it with one strand of a stranded 14/12 THHN.
