Wanted...Battery clamp
« on: 24 December 2018, 13:31:02 »

I need a battery clamp if anyone has one lying around. I am refering to the clamp that holds the bottom of the battery, with a 13mm bolt.
Thanks.

If you need one in  hurry, then a short piece of 1/2" angle with a 10mm hole drilled through the angle works well. Add a longer M8 bolt and washer and you're done.
