Do you mean a connection to a turn on the tank coil? If so, I use a
piece of thin brass strap, 1/4 inch wide. I form it around a wire or
drill bit which is just a tiny bit smaller in diameter than the tank
wire, then drill a hole through it for a 4-40 nut and bolt. Snap it
onto the tank wire and install the nut and bolt. Works like a charm
and is much more reliable than a soldered connection.
