jumper cables

Posted by wily_william (My Page) on

Im planning on making a set of jumper cables with one-aught (1/0) welding cableand since what I know about welding cable you could put in your eye, Im wondering what to look for in the product: the type of outer jacket (neoprene, EPDM?), the type of cable/jacket separator, the construction of the cable itself.

I find that I can buy cable on line at a substantial discount over the local supplier even with shipping. Yet Im not sure of which vendor to go with.

Has anyone any experience with welding cableor with homemade jumper cablesthat I could use?

You may find that just buying a set actually costs less.

RE: jumper cables

Thanks so much for your response. Likely, I could buy a substantial set for less than I have now in the clamps alone: $57+. But . . . in for a penny, in for a pound. And for personal reasons I want to have the best cables money can buy.

Many thanks, again, for your interest.
