Anyone know where the crimping tool and connectors might be purchased for connecting
large service wires? My local supply house does not carry them. I'm guessing a supply house for lineman or power companies?? I went to the Klein site but didn't see one. Thanks for the help...

I was doing some research on 3rd rail heater splicing kits and had to find step-down uninsulated butt splices. The only place I found them was www.terminalsupplyco.com. Their HQ is in Troy Mi. and they have 6 Satellite locations. I downloaded their catalog pdfs(once I got DSL) and couldn't believe all of the odd ball stuff that they have. I'm not saying that they have what you need but they are well worth a look. I would check their terminal & maintenance catalog sections first. Good luck with your hunt.

Burndy makes a full line of crimpers...hydraulic, battery operated, with easy inspection to show that it fully crimped in the correct die. Be ready to pay the price.

The battery powered crimper is expensive, but it is the cats meow.

Ok, spark.

I use the MCT type tool and it works nice.
That link will help you locate a supplier, but be prepared to spend about $400.00.
The professional looking installation makes it worth the money.
