Default the proper way to terminate large wire

this is a small tutorial

the reason i call the the proper way to terminate large wire, is this is the method that electricians and linesmen use all over the world to keep our power grid working, and the electricity flowing to your house so you can plug in your computer and see what is going on in the forum

soldering is for circuit boards and pipe not large wire

thing with soler is that it is not as conductive as the copper itself so the chances that it will melt are great

if you ever get a loose connection the wire can get red hot and melt the solder ive had grounds come loose and melt 2' of insulation and pulsate red with the beat of the music.

a mechanical connection is the only propper safe way to do it

think safety

just cuz its strong when its done dont mean it cant fail

a properly crimped connector will be as reliable as the wire its self never coming off even under huge pulling forces (ive hung from them and not had them fall out ) 200 lbs btw



first thing we need to understand is that the wire has many small strands so it needs to be cut with something sharp, steak knives pliers and stuff like that are a poor choice. Use the proper tool and dont use it for anything else it should last you for years, my robocut is the first one that came out i have been using this exact same cutter like 8 years without ever buying new blades!

the next step is expensive but i will gladly do it free if you pay shipping here and back

with this crimper there are 4 jaws that crimp all at the same time they automatically let go as soon as the proper crimping pressure is reached using no heat to melt insulation or solder to melt it can be done by your grand mother or kid the hydraulic pump does all the work very easy actually

the nice thing is that if you get the ring terminal that is bigger than the wire you can fit 2 wires in the same lug

so for instance in my crx i have 4 runs of + and 4 runs of - wire but only 2 terminals on the battery, very slick ! and space consuming only better option for multiple runs is a custom machined distro block but sometimes they get in the way.









so there you have it

hope it helps
