Time for the big wires

This hookup is for a #8 wire. My standard crimpers (shown in the photo) won't work for this dude. So I'm off to the forum on VansAirForce.net for advice on what to use to attach this hookup to a #8 wire.
UPDATE 10/28/2010: I did some Googleing and found a crimping set that would crimp a #8 wire. This set should fit in my ratchet crimp tool frame in the picture to the left. $36 bucks for 2 wire crimps. Oh well, that's airplane stuff for ya'.
