    Looking 4 supplier of tinned crimping lugs for boat wiring

    Can anyone suggest a supplier of lugs for crimping - particularly 8AWG to Blue Sea terminal block? I live in a country town - we do have a Jaycar, but they can't help

    Thanks - Tony

    See if Sparky Direct have anything you may want. They mail free, usually the next day then its up to the PO for delivery times. and are reasonably priced. I've given up on Jaycar, they seem to have ignored this part of the market for a long time.

    Copper tubing is easy to work with.

    electrical wholesalers generally sell them individually, regardless of gauge and hole size, and at least you know they are quality!

    These are the lugs i used u just hold the lug with pliers heat it with any pencil blow torch even a blow torch lighter would work feed some general solder down into the lug followed by the wire the wire will wick it up if not marine grade and it will solder to the lug

    I usually just buy all of my heavier stuff from an electrical wholesaler or via Ebay.

    Thanks guys - My mate is an experienced solderer - I think it is more convenient than pissing around with the variety of lugs that are needed for the connections.
    I do appreciate everyone's contributions though

    cheers - Tony

    🤔... Hmmm, no love for sourcing stuff from BCF, or their cousin SuperCheap?
