Tony, I often use a T-rex type stripper (mines an old one from Jaycar)to allow soldering of the feeder wires to the bus. You just need to be careful when using them that they don't cut the bus wire.
Other options can be slicing one side of the insulation with a hobby knife, wrapping the wire around and soldering. By applying the solder and iron on the exposed side a reliable join can be made.
A pair of side cutters can also be used to pull back the insulation, but it takes practice.

Others use suitcase connectors but I am not a fan of them as both wires need to be the exact size required for a reliable joint.
