This is how the joints for low-budget stop-motion armatures are made. You stick two or three lenghts of aluminum wire together in a power drill and hold the other ends of the wires with a pair of pliers. Gently turn the drill and you’ve got instant braided aluminum wire. Braided because it will hold up much better under stress and it won’t be as springy or wobbly.
