    Default Crimping Amp Power Leads

    Hi guys,

    I'm fitting a 1 Farad Capacitor into my exisitng ICE setup and need to crimp some 4AWG power (& earth) leads with some ring terminals (gold plated jobbies methinks).

    Unfortunately I haven't got a crimpper big enough, nor a pair of pliers that are up to the job, so I'm wondering what others have used?

    Cheers,
    Graham

    First time I done it with 4Ga... Hammer and Pliers

    Second time was with 0Ga so that was Crimped - Fortunately for me I can Lay my hands on Such things...

    For Reference 4Ga = 35mm2, 0Ga = 50mm2
