The "kit" has 33 of the 50,
18Ga or smaller,
which I don't have a use for...

Looking for a decent marine fuse box.
8 to 10 fuses.

It has been around for awhile from 3m but expensive.
This kind is actually waterproof and will do the really small electronics wire.

There is a video of how to do it (no crimping) and other suppliers on amazon >search term:waterproof solder butt connectors.

I will explain after SC states it will not work.

I like the crimp. I crimp it. Then I give it a pull. And it stays on. And I nod my head. And do the next one. This would take that satisfying feeling away from me.

I use them, I crimp them, I love them. The only mistake I made when first using them was not intertwining the ends like in the video and then sliding the piece over the top.

They’ll have to be outstanding to be better than what we use from Pacer Group (standard mechanical crimped butt connectors with heavy adhesive lined heat shrink tubing).

Maybe someone can enlighten me but the last time I looked ABYC does not recommend soldered connections for marine installations...
