Nichrome wire problem... Answered

Just have a little problem that im sure a lot of you have the answer...

I try to put a Nichrome wire on come copper wire but the copper wire is always burning (when the Nichrome get red and hot [really need its ^^])

Use something that doesn't conduct heat very well between the nichrome and the copper wire. Steel is pretty common, I think.
