The best hook-up "wire" that I used for the tank circuit was 1/4 inch
copper tubing. It's easy to bend, but you have to use caution when
working around this area with the power on because of the lack of
insulation. I suggest you use an insulated cover over the tank
circuit,(if possible). 

Good luck :-)
