Start Crimping the Battery Cables

In the past few days I have been cutting, crimping and heatshrinking the battery cables that will go from the + of one battery to the - of another. I will also need to crimp terminals on all the other cables that will bolt on to a component.

To do this I strip the cable, slide the terminal on, stick it in the hammer crimper and hammer it with a sledge 4 or 5 times. Then i slide some heat shrink on and use a propane tank to shrink it around the crimp, making it better insulated and more durable.
