Wire Holder for Resistance Measurement of Stranded Aluminum Wire

Hello,
I am looking for the proper wire holder type to measure resistance of stranded aluminum wire. the problem is; we cannot obtain reliable/ repeatable results with our current wire holders which is suitable for copper conductors. Can anyone help please?

Thank you in advance.

You may need something that will consistently penetrate the thin layer of aluminum oxide on the surface of the strands. While it is not normally detrimental to carrying current, it might interfere with precision electrical measurements.
