I've read many of the crimp & power lug threads, but haven't come across any references
I'm re-wiring and I'm using a lot of 4/0, 2/0, & 2 AWG wire (some Berkshire & some Ancor). I have a good crimp tool, and proper power lugs.
For some of the connections, it would be very useful if the cable could approach the post at a right angle, and attach with a lug whose post hole was at right angles to the cable entry.
For those of you finding my description a bit hard: it's for something like Blue Sea's remote battery
switches like these:
ML-RBS Remote Battery Switch with Manual Control - 12V DC 500A - Blue Sea Systems
They attach to the wall, and the lug posts are parallel to the wall. I'd like to ring the wires up the wall from below, and a right angle lug would allow a very nice connection.
So, I have a couple of questions:
1) I'm using FTZ Heavy Duty lugs, but they don't seem to make right angle versions. Does anyone know a company that makes properly colour coded right angle heavy duty lugs?
2) Could I just bend a standard lug to do the job? I don't see why not, but does anyone have an actual reason why that might not be a good idea?
