Re: About the cable used in oscilloscope probes

I don't know what is used now but in his sixties books GA Briggs of Wharfedale speaker fame mentions they tinned the aluminium voice coil wire using an ultrasonic solder pot. The ultrasonic energy causes cavitation that strips off the surface oxidation under the solder surface, excluding the air.
I think it would likely work with nichrome too.
