Hey camilitech, I'm checking out your Funk D'void (Original Disc Jockey & purveyor of the Luxury Techno sound) flyer in the back ground. Are you guilty of chucking shapes or dad dancing in the past?

I would have thought Gary Numan with his Are Friends Electric track would be more applicable to this battery derived thread.  hysteria






I met him after that gig and he signed a CD for me, AWESOME  Cool

The thing with trimming the post or using a hole saw is that the wire strands go into the post so not quite so easy to cut or trim without the drill wandering. A set of cheapo chinky crimpers will see you through all the wind turbine, battery, boat and Land Rover jobs you will ever do for a mere £30, money well invested if you ask me  Cool

Cheers, Paul

And I thought you wore those ear defenders to protect your hearing from the noise in the ship's engine room. But it turns out it is more likely to save what hearing you have left after excessive clubbing.  whistlie

True enough that a good crimping tool will always come in handy, I borrow one from my pal's garage on the odd occasion I require one.
I have been guilty of a little crimptastic behaviour mixed with some hot solder and heat shrink action myself lately...... Grin



What with all this talk of batteries and music, I wonder if we can drag this thread off topic enough to include pole dancing?  Grin

You should have got the £30 you cheapskate  hysteria  hysteria, done everything from 90 down to 10 mm with it, makes beautiful joints even upside down and in mid air when you can't get a hammer and mandrel in  Tongue
