Wiring a new plug

I need to wire a new plug for a small tool in my shop. Which of the wires goes to the larger blade - hot or neutral?

Neutral. The screws are quite often different colors, too. The neutral is silver and the hot one is gold colored.

I tried to teach a friend of mine once that it was neutral on silver, hot on gold. All he could remember was 'white on wide'.
