Your local hardware store (Lowe's, etc) will have a good assortment of different sized eyelets you can use. I curl the braid into a tight circular conductor and slip it inside the eyelet terminal. I

Kurt, you are way off base talking about auto parts stores the way you have. You have obviously made an assumption. Trust me, I owned an auto parts store for over 20 years and we, meaning my store an

Agreed.   As an example, our local auto supply store will make up custom battery cables. They have a hydraulic crimping system for the end connectors and will make cable lengths to order.  If it will
