If you spend any kind of time doing this you should just invest in a jig to hold the work. And solder is thin and flexible, it's pretty easy with a bit of practice to manipulate it with the other fingers.

Wiggling the joint while it's setting is sub-optimal.

Of course. But not everything fits into a jig.
