Ring Terminal Guide Sheet I often order wiring supplies from these guys http://www.wiringdepot.com/jt-t-tech-ar ... -Size-mean
Stud size is size of the stud bolt in thousandths (or Metric).
Ring size is the ID size of the ring.

Today I was asked about how to choose proper size Ring Terminals for the project at hand.
HOW to choose Ring Terminals & other wiring connectors Understanding the Different Types of Wire Terminals

NonInsulated Ring Terminals http://www.wiringdepot.com/store/c/93-N ... inals.aspx
My preferences, I won't use anything but bare metal non insulated ring terminals, butt connectors etc, can be either crimped or soldered, and I choose to solder everything & use shrink tubing as insulation. It is neater and also cheaper, I believe I've enough supplies in my wiring stores to last 10 people a lifetime. For what you'd spend on the typical Ring Terminals to do a few wiring jobs, you could have enough non-insulated terminals & shrink tubing to help 10 friends wire up their projects :mrgreen:

I am a solar engineer with 18 years of experience in solar systems, off grid, grid tie, wind, etc... offering our help to anyone out there going off grid.

much developments lately, the main thing is the inverter choice, we like Sol-ark which can be EMP hardened to resist emp attack.

private message me if you are interested, I'm in the US.

Welcome SeanMcGreen. It was getting a bit lonely here :mrgreen:
I agree, I hate living in this time too, for GSM & knowing history and the GSM part of the awful political issues brewing.
Yep, we'll all make the best of it, is all we can do.

Hey Sean, what did I say that is very detailed? I'm just curious, not meaning to sound confrontational, which isn't my style.
