    I want to build up my stock of wire terminals;where can I buy in bulk? Any assortments that contain 50 or so of each type? looking for a cheaper way to stock up. I'm near BFE so internet sources are good.

    Ditto for Waytek. Very good quality as well.

  4. x3 for Waytek. Also look at Rhode Island Wire, they are a little more money, but great customer service.

    If your travels ever take you into the Orlando/Winter Park area,check out Skycraft Surplus. The deals used to be better when everything was a mess,but now they've actually inventoried everything and know where it is! Their wire deals are killer!

    Are you looking for factory style terminals (Packard 56, Weatherpack, etc) or generic crimp terminals?

    terminal supply. Great products/service. I've used them on everything from hot rods to Ferraris to wind turbines and aircraft.
     
  9. a basic napa Belden box kit is a good starter asst ..
    replenish in 25- 500 count boxes has the part no. on each compartment with proper wire size guide

    avoid dicount or swap meet terminals
    any 3M piecemeal are good
     
  10. Di you look at the crappy terminals that vendor was selling at BTT50s? Same sidewalk as the Morton Bldg

    Del City (www.delcity.com) has all sorts of terminals, connectors, switches, et cetera. They also have adhesive lined clear shrink tube - very cool stuff.

    Fastenal carries a decent assortment, plenty to stock up with without cornering the market on any one terminal. I like the NAPA stuff as well.

    When I bough for a boat factory a few years ago these guys were cheaper than Dell City and several of the others mentioned by quite a bit. They had good selection and had stock to ship. www.hillsdaleterminal.com
