    500 MCM cable end swage block

    About 3 years ago I was setting up my Solar panels , battery bank and inverter to power my Motor coach I needed ends for my cables the cables to the inverter from the battery bank are 500 MCM .OK I could have used 0000 AWG but I already had the heavier cable
    I made a swage block out if a piece of 1/2" sch 40 black pipe and a couple of pieces of 1/2" thick bar
