Re: About the cable used in oscilloscope probes


Difficult to solder metals can often be handled by cleaning and etching with
hydrochloric acid and then depositing copper via electrolysis and an easily
acquired solution of copper sulphate or copper nitrate. I would worry about
strain relief of the wire at the edge of the solder joint though.

BTW, as the center conductor is nichrome, you can't solder it. The connections at the terminations are usually crimped on the wire.
