Hi all, I just finished installing my new battery charger (Xantrex Truecharge2, 40amp) today. While putting together the wiring, which was 6 and 8 gauge, I was trying to figure out how to make good crimps without buying another expensive tool. I had to make one more trip to WM (of course) to get more wire, ring terminals and heat shrink. As luck would have it, I brought 3 pre-cut wires with me to make sure I bought enough fittings. Anyway, on my way to the register I took a lap through the sailing tackle section, and what did I spy? A bench-mounted crimper. So I just pulled my fittings and heat shrink out of the packages and put them together using WM's crimper. Very nice indeed! I figured, what is the worst they could do to me? Tell me to stop? Nobody even noticed and I built 4 complete lines. BTW, if they gave me sh*t for using their stuff I was going to remind them of how much I have spent in their store.

Thought you all might like to know. Especially if you just need to do one or two wires. And yes, I did pay for the fittings, etc. :)

Good luck, Bill

Damn! I thought I pulled one over on them! Well it is good to know that they allow it. I'll be back with some other stuff to crimp.
