If you can find used welding cables you can make your own battery cables. That way you can make them no longer than necessary. You can buy the soldered type lugs at most auto parts stores along with some flux. Take along a propane torch and a few tools. Hal

Actually got a pile of those things in the shop but never have used them. Always use the clamp on type if I needed to replace an end.....even though I hate those things. How do you attach the solder type lugs? What type of solder would I use to affix them.? I think all I have is the small electrical solder. We might have a roll of the larger solder (about size of 10 ga wire). What is used for those lugs?

i buy my cable at the case ih dealer in about 8ft pieces at a time. i get them to crip a pos. and neg. terminal on each end. then when i need a cable i just cut it to length the + or - end and just have to solder an eye on the other end. that way your ahead of the game... till you use both ends.

The solder type of lugs have the solder already in them. Just slip it onto the cable and then heat it.

Welding cable will work, but it is not the same stuff as battery cable is made of.

WOW, well I wish I knew that! That is even easier than the clamp type and so much more durable and reliable!! Thanks for the tip. I have the flux and propane torch handy to do that too. How would you use flux with them since it has solder built in? Just spread some around inside the lug??

Crimping is even better than soldering, but you need some special tools to do the crimping. The best battery cable ends and lugs are made of heavy, cast copper, and are crimped on.
