I have a question or two regarding the Oneshot molds. I picked up a box of them
sized per their literature for my size wire (#4 bare, solid copper). It seems
me there is an awful lot of airspace between the metal sleeve that fits into
mold and the wire itself. Is this normal, expecting that the weld material will
encapsulate the wire without too much leakage? For sticklers, the outside
diameter of the wire is 0.205" and the inside diameter of the sleeve is 0.242".
I am aware Cadweld lists a part designed to increase wire diameter but is this
necessary? If so, couldn't I just wrap a small gage copper wire around the
wire thereby increasing its diameter?
Tnx es 73,
