McMaster’s site rules!

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

I had been having some trouble trying to find a local source for braided copper grounding straps suitable for making battery interconnects.  No idea why it is hard to find, but there it is.  Sean suggested I try a few sites, and one of them is www.mcmasters.com.  Wow.  460,000 different parts, just about anything you can imagine you would need for just about anything.  (who me? impressed?  Heck yeah!)

Anyways, I ordered the flexible braided copper cable (equivalent to 2/0 AWG) and melting pot for solder last night.  This afternoon – they were delivered.  O_O

Wow.  Color me majorly impressed.
