For audio and electronic stuff, I have .75mm for fine work, as it doesn't take much heat to flow, and 0.050" for hitting terminals on connectors and such. Never soldered giant electrical stuff - wouldn't trust solder for that kind of work. Doubt you'd find solder anywhere in your house's electrical system. That's what rough electrical connectors are for :-)
