    I've (not) been able to find an appropriate connector. I'm running 4 gauge wire into and out of the connection terminals on this pwm. I've struck out searching for lug and ring terminals. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    Hmmm. Interesting idea. Wonder where I can buy just a foot of 1/4" copper tubing...

    At the hardware/plumbing store or in the dumpster of an airconditioning servicing place. Perhaps behind an old refrigerator with a defunct ice maker.

    Thomas & Betts makes a lot of the large AWG (and small) terminals.
    You might want to Google them for size matches.
    An electrical (for electricians) supply store should stock what you need.
    Example of a T&B compression lug in your size is part #54106.
    (Just remember, you need a proper crimp tool (or solder it), for these large terminals.

    Why so big? I think 4awg is way oversized.
