    I like this line:
    and then cutting back a few strands so the ends will fit in the lugs, will reduce the overall wire resistance and the voltage drop will be less.

    In the interest of world peace I've changed the link in your post to one that's not clickable by adding a couple of spaces in it. From past experience crosslinking between forums and debating the merits of their threads can cause animosity and start problems.
