I wrap the two wires together and then crimp them. do the same any time i need to crimp wires together, never a problem so far.
I NEVER use butt connectors where you push a wire in each end and crimp them. Always wrap them then use one end of the butt connector, works for me.

The nichrome crumbles up with silver solder heat.
