Be sure to support your local fire department. You may need them.

I think the blue connectors are rated at 15a 250v?

I agree with Rod. I bought one of these 936 soldering stations cheap. I have been using it for about 2 years now with no problems. It gets more than hot enough to solder anything on just about any fan. No need to crimp connect anything. Extra tips are plentiful.

The second photo will work if a brass screw is used to connect them, normally used on a terminal block. A spade clip is not designed to be crimped at the spade end & will not tightly hold the wire. This will result in the connection overheating, causing more resistance, causing more overheating & hopefully the fire truck has arrived.

The article claims " and I cannot find it again" that Ford motor company used this method along with other companies... I dunno... I thought it was interesting...
