Was bored at work so I made some battery terminals with 6 - 2/0 gauge terminals


Took my back battery wiring from this


to this


Made out of aluminum 1" thick. I'm bored at work and needed something to do, but now that my project is over I wouldn't mind taking on a few others. Just shoot my your design and I'll probably make it sometime.

Stevew007 told me I should make some 2-1/0 inputs for amps. If I have to set up the CNC machine for this i'll probably pop out more than a few.

If I had to charge it'd be around $5 or $10 an hour depending on design, Prices are cheap since I'm getting the aluminum from scrap and i'm machining this on my own time.

open it up to more than locals man, wouldn't be hard to ship these and if the person is using bolts on the terminals then all you'll need is bolt size

I would open it up to everyone if I had free access to the CNC machine all the time, but if my bosses saw me in the machine shop all the time they'd think I didnt have enough work and pile it on.

make a bunch of them small and compact and make a bunch for the amps like we talked and then sell them after it will be less headache
