Cable Crimper

Depending on the size , as a rag bagger we have a Nicropress cable tool on the smaller heavy wiring like #6.

It does crush the hell out of the terminal end .

There are mixed opinions on soldering BIG (04) starter sized wiring.

WE use a discarded cable cutter die ground to have flats on the ex cutting edge.

This crush locks the heavy terminals in a number of rings and seems impossible to pull off, we have tried.

So the mechanical portion of the requirement is done.

WE do chose to use a plumbers ladle filled with molten solder to dunk the end into on starting circuits.For the electrical requirement.

So far 35 years and no failures,

FF
