Incubator thermostat

I picked up a wafer thermostat(about 3" diameter)so I could make a small incubator for some turtle eggs (don't ask), anyway, there are no leads to attach the heat cable to, just a rim of solder on both sides. So how do you connect this thing?
do you just solder the leads one on both sides?

If its like mine george...the wafer actual acts as a bellows. The heat expands the disk and comes in contact with an electrical switch which in turn puts the current to the heating element. The other heat switch I have is on the back of the wood stove... but it has push on blade terminals...

It seems as if you only have a replacement wafer. the wafer usually sits on top of a switch. Try this address to see what I mean.
