A load of Cu strap just arrived at the house, rolls of 3 in and 1.5 in. The edge of the 3 in roll is somewhat battered and will need to be straightened. I plan to use a piece of wood and a hammer to do this while it is still rolled up. Then the strap will be cut to length and installed from the station buss bar to the SPG, replacing the existing braid.
Scotch pads work well for cleaning.
Don't forget to use a copper hammer when pounding on the strap. Don't want to contaminate it with any iron.
An alligator clip will work for a quick disconnect. :>)
