That's exactly what it is. For the earth clamps.
You will need a crimped lug to connect to most crocodile clamps.
Some 600 amp screw type clamps terminate with a grub screw, but mostly with a bolt.
You can buy knock on lugs which you smash onto the cable with a hammer (I hate them, they offend me) or the bolt on type where the lug has two halves that clamp together round the cable.
That's how I done the last one, looks horrible.
I use 50mm^2 for extensions, 35mm^2 in the stinger
Our Lorch sets (500 Amp) came with earth clamps same as these F clamps with a hole drilled in the end and the cable bolted to it with a decent lug. The cables are a bit frayed around the lugs and need making off again, but they are the only earth clamps that have gone the distance. I don't know if that is a Lorch standard or not.
Some of the cheapy croc clamps don't last the week and the more expensive 'brass'/zinc coated steel (?) loose their grip and the jaws bend apart then eventually explode into a million pieces
Probably bessey, also German made?
No, not quite Bessey quality, but strong enough for what they need to do.
Jim has got some nice 400 amp crocodile style earth clamps for me which will be better than I can get from my LWS. Should be just the job for a little site stick welder.
Still looking at stingers. I used to have a very good old school Bakelite one but it disintegrated one day.
Stinger-v from the us is nice. I imported 2 last month. The tweco ones are nice too.
I did like the myking twist type for a while but found the handle too short so went back to a big boc twist type. I had a clear out recently, just got the stinger-v on the whip now.
I also have 50mm leads and 35 on the stinger whip
Can you take a few pictures of the V Stinger Hugh? I saw you got it on instagram.
Sure, one moment... to the shed!
Haha I could have waited lol!
Other end of the estate... phnar phnar...
Note that is a children's mug...
That's a nice bit of kit
Looks like an implement of torture
My Oxford one looks very similar design (but much more spindly).
