    SOLDER! the twisted splice, where each wire end is wrapped around the opposing wire is called a western union splice (P.S.259 Brooklyn, N.Y. 1956 Jr. H.S. shop class) then soldered and (taped) but modern now, shrink tubing. use thin resin filled solder. Heat the joint then apply the solder, just enough to ‘soak’ into the splice.
