splice aluminum and copper
I have spliced #6 copper to #6 aluminum. I was given three connector lugs and told to tape them and I'd be OK, along with a junction box. I did it with no problem but I'd like some reassurance from you real sparkies here. I held the lugs with pliers and tightened the screws in as tight as I could with a regular screwdriver, used that black goo on the aluminum wire, and taped the lugs with about 8 wraps of electrical tape. Then I just pushed and pushed until they all fit into the junction box, which I think could have been a little bigger. The ends of the aluminum wire seemed to almost bend at 90degree angles when I pushed everything into the box, is this OK? Should I have done anything different?
