im looking for a tool to crimp 4 awg wire u guys know were i can get one from
I just used a big pair of pliers. Worked great for me.
two ways to do it
does anybody soder there connectors
some people do. i have not just because the two methods i listed are faster and cleaner. you wouldn't believe some of the pull out i do in peoples cars that are sodered.
It would take a pretty serious iron to solder 4ga to a terminal
you don't use and iron. you use a torch.
Used to be a welder and I always used a rounded (blunted) chisel. Tape or a sleeve is nice for a car. We never bothered with it in a weld shop.
BFH!! BIG F...ING HAMMER! This is for future reference to anyone else
Awh I was hoping this would be a thread on where to find a deal on real copper, real 4 gauge wire.
Can $1 a foot for Cadence brand be beaten (I know it's not pure copper but the gauge at least looks honest).
look into knukonceptz. they have good true gauged wire. the kolossus fleks kable is true ofc. its the same thing (from what i can tell) as stinger. but cheaper. steer clear of the klmx and kca. those are both copper clad aluminum. granted they will do a good job but you have to pay attention to the amperage they car carry. i have used it in a few cars with no issue but i also do a lot of research as to what wire will carry with out over heating.
