Well that's what ''Vehicle Wiring Products'' call them!

If you scroll down this page:

http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.eu/VWP-onlinestore/terminalsnonins/noninsblades.php

you'll see them, I'm after SBB or SBG but not in the common size of 6.3mm. It's the next size up which is (I believe) 10mm that I need, having looked everywhere including ebay, I've failed - any suggestions?

Ta Julian.

What happened to LUCAR? did he die!
Who are the clever people who change names? And where did they get the idea there can be a FEMALE blade? Mad Is it something to do with a sex change?

Thanks Dave, that'll do the trick nicely - it's for an ammeter on a Massey 135 tractor. I guess 3/8'' is the size, just nowadays rounded to the nearest mm as retailers aren't allowed to sell stuff in imperial nowadays! (Dam EEC bureaucrats Sad )

BTW I've not heard or seen the ''Lucar'' word for about 30 years!

Glad that fits the bill, if you need an unisulated crimper tool give me a shout!

Cool Not realy part of this thread but. I found out by experimenting that the crimp on bullet conectors that have insulation on them are heat sensitive. If you fit then onto the cable then heat with a heat gun they shrink and become water tight as well as almost imposible to get a part handy if you are burying the conector in some god forasaken place in the bowels of your car, truck etc. Dont see why this would not work with other types of conector with a simular insulated covering. Sorry for hyjacking this post.
