Solder still not perfect but much better. I don't know if it will hold up under heat/load.

Anyone else have a good idea how to get a really good solder with the stuff on the NEU wires?
You can heat the wire ends and then put them in an asprin while they are hot and sometimes you can get the varnish to come off that way. Just don't breath the fumes that comes off from doing that, it is nasty.
