WOW! I know I said that bigger is better, but 25mm is almost an inch. Any of
these cables would be massive overkill. The 2AWG I used is approximately 12mm
with the insulation on. That is slightly larger than a normal battery cable
(about 10mm on my Land Rover). Remember that whatever you choose you are going
to have to solder a connector on the end. I don't think battery cable ends
come that large. The amount of material in a cable increases as the square of
the radius so a length of 25mm cable will weigh as much as four equivalent
lengths of 12.5mm cable. That might be enough of copper to make a decent down
payment on a new wire wheel or something. If there is an electrical utility
contractor around maybe they will have some cut offs ends you could look
through, sometimes they will sell these for the weight of the copper.Good luck
in your quest.Bill Lawrence > From: keithbailey5 at bigpond.com> To:
