Re: Crimping versus Soldering

Hey Brent... I agree with you that the black is much better with UV.... The same holds true with zip ties, zippers and thread on any canvas work.... I have and industrial sewing machine and do all of my own canvas work.... I use only black thread and zippers.... and dont use nylon in the sun.... Poly does much, much better in the sun that nylon...

Re: Crimping versus Soldering

Solid wire for boat building is not only prohibited under the ABYC standards but is also specifically prohibited under US federal law in the Code of Federal Regulations..

Transport Canada Marine Standards also require "stranded" not solid wire.

Use at your own risk...

It's a very good value plus you can buy about 30 different dies for it... You don't even want to know how many crimp tools I own.... Hell I think I've lost count....

Re: Crimping versus Soldering

Maine Sail, I hope I dont upset you here.... But if you had to pick a crimper that is made specifically for heat shrink connectors, and nothing else.... What would you say is the absolute very best one... Money no object.... Not the T-head, but one made just for Heat shrink.... Is there any that stands above the rest? I hope Im not being annoying... Thanks Joe

Re: Crimping versus Soldering

OK!! OK!! I hearyou guy's but 40 years later my properly soldered terminals conduct better and have never failed me. Although properly crimped terminels work fine too.
I'm probably dealimg with a lot larger guage wire on a powe boat working with Cat. and Detroit Diesel's and I'm also open minded about things that work well. Pick and choose your choice,
