I stopped in a surplus junk store at lunch today and came across something you don't see every day.
Insulated Pin Wire Terminals for 10-12 AWG. I've had the $21 for 100 link in my Amazon wish list for a couple of months. For one reason or another I haven't added them in on an order yet.

Today luck found me.
75 for $2.99 in a opened box. Now my OCD can rest with the wired ends on my extra power supply lines.

I'll take 4 for $5 shipped please.

I could use some too!

If that part number is 10-145F, that's not even the right box for those.

Ha Ha, I hadn't realized the box had been opened and taped back shut until well after I was gone and in better lighting. I assume they were tossed in a convenient box laying around for sale purposes. It's one of those junk boxes of surplus gears, sprockets, springs, sanding disks, caster wheels, etc kind of place. You never know what they will have in stock. My last trip there a few years back yielded pulleys for my Jeep Wrangler Hardtop hoist.

Hmm this surplus shop you talk of sounds kind of like Delaney's Surplus......

You can use a 45 amp Anderson Powerpole contact for the same purpose.

I love those kind of stores, never know what you may find.
Good Score.

I thought the same thing, but... $2.99/75/2pr = 37pr @ $.09 cents per pair!

What's a good price on a pair of 45amp Powerpoles? $1.16? Over a dollar more each. ~12 times the price! $3 investment vs $42.92?

You don't need the plastic part of the 45 amp power poles just the metal contact.
They are only $0.28 a piece.
Now what to use for thicker gauge wire for longer runs as in 6 and 8 gauge?

Yeah, but if you only need two, and already have a bag of 2 doz 45 amp contacts, and to get the pins you have I would have
to buy a whole box of, waht, 100 pcs? Well, there you go.
