Re: Overpriced crimp-lugs
In the UK we more or less have a choice between the expensive ones with
brazed seams on the crimp tube or the cheap ones that have those hard
plastic sleeves that you "crimp" along with the terminal - the latter are
next to useless and pull off the wire dead easy. What I do is pull the
plastic sleeve off and crimp them with the tool for the bare metal ones. If
you need a really reliable crimp - finish off with a spot of solder, enough
solder to wick up the wire creates a fatigue point though.
If a terminal needs insulation, I use heat shrink sleeve.
