Have to have the [ ] 's around quote, and after the = is who you are quoting (I didn't make that very clear before)

eg: [quote=Stillraining] then the quote, then just /quote inside the brackets

Actually, many of the proper crimp terminals have a seam, but it is brazed at that point.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I've had no problems with the Ancor terminals, and if you have a Home Depot that carries them, they are way cheaper there.

You need a "]" after the PBzeer and a "[" before the "/".

A select few Home Depot stores, mostly in Florida, do carry a very small assortment of anchor wire and connectors. Unfortunately, none of the Home Depot stores in the North East, that I've been in, carry Anchor products.

These are the connectors I use in my auto shop. They're the best I've found, but you can't just go to the store and buy some. BTW the cost for these is about a buck a piece depending on the style of connector.
