Just get the tinned from Safety marine, go for the 40mm and get the crimp ends too while you're at it, you can borrow or hire crimp tools from CEF or other electrical wholesalers, job done

About Safety Marine UK

Yes but I think they only do mail order but you could ring them?

How much are you looking for?

Yes Cities or any electrical wholesaler who sells kit for house bashing etc should have the crimp tool.

There is a load in my shed you are welcome to. It's tinned and 20mm + in diameter and we used the same stuff on Billy so you can be assured it's got the grunt Call Jasper or Britt to arrange collection. You'll also need the crimp eye terminals which is in my crimp bag and the large crimp tool. which is hanging from the rafter above the window. Ohhh I do so miss my shed

I have pm'd you the numbers!
