3/4" ID Ring Terminals

Does anyone know a source for 3/4" id ring terminals for #8 bonding wire? I have looked everywhere and 1/2" id is the largest I can find. Thanks

I don't know of any 3/4 ring terminals. But if you buy an FTZ 1/2 R..T, and use an Erwin Reamer, then spray with Corrosion X.HD

It will give you the 5 years service rating, and then it's time to re-new all the bonding connections anyway.

Short answer: no.

BUT.... Can you accept the idea of, say, cutting about a half inch piece of #8, and inserting that with the #8 lead into a larger terminal? Essentially, two wires inserted into one terminal?

If so, this company stocks large(er) terminals, ring and otherwise, including up to 3/4 inch:

ShipShape, thank you very much for the source for the 3/4" ring terminals. I looked all over the internet and could not find a source larger than a 1/2" stud. Good luck and good sailing.
