Yep, they sure will.   For HV I like to use a ceramic feed through insulator 
covered by a removable housing to prevent accidental contact with the exposed 
screw stud.   The Navy SRT-14/15/16 transmitters used ceramic plate caps (807 
size) on the cable ends and ceramic feed throughs with appropriately sized 
brass mating lugs on the chassis side for HV connections.   Clever solution.
