Re: MOT supply construction question

You may be able to use quick connects, but I've found they tend to slip off
very easily if you tug on the wire, and then it's very messy getting it back
out of the oil again - soldering is much more secure, although you'll probably
need a soldering iron of at least 30W because there's so much thermal mass.
You can always just solder the quick connectors together, then heat them up
again if you ever need to remove them.
