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  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.
