DIY: Terminal Clip

DIY: Terminal Clip

Click to View on Amazon

I needed some large terminal lugs for my microwave spot welder and they were both hard to find and expensive.

What I decided to do was make my own out of copper pipe.  This DIY terminal clip was for 2 gauge wire and used a short length of 1/4 copper pipe.

I used a pipe cutter to cut a couple inches off of the end of the copper tube.

Next I used the vice to smash one end closed.  I could have used a hammer, but the vice gives a little more control.

After the end is smashed flat, drill a hole through the flat end to make a terminal clip.

Lastly we used a swage to press the copper pipe to the wire.  You could solder it, but I find a good pressure fit works well.
