Cable crimping help needed


Recommended Posts

Good evening.

I stay in Elspark, Germiston and I am looking for somebody that can help to crimp 2 lugs onto cables. I think it is an 8mm camble.

I guess this a battery cable.

In the case you cannot get anyone with a large crimper to help you.

This not the best method however it works as an alternative. 

Strip the wire and fit the lug.  Put the lug with the wire in a vice and close vice tightly. 

This will flatten the lug which is not the best. Pull on the wire to check and if a little loose, repeat.

You can also put a screw on the side of lug  and tighten after the first attempt to put an indentation in the lug to stop the wire from coming loose

Something to keep in mind.  Loose or bad connections with large amounts of current is bad news.
