Homemade Battery Cable Connector
Larry Wood, Waldo, Ohio: “I was using my riding mower recently and turned off the engine so I could pick up some sticks in the yard. When I got back on I couldn’t get the mower started.
  “I opened the hood and found that an eyelet on the end of a cable from the battery to the starter was broken. I didn’t have a new eyelet that large so I made one using a 2-in. long, 3/8-in. dia. soft copper pipe. I hammered one end of the pipe flat and drilled a 5/6-in. dia. hole through it, then soldered it to the battery cable. I was back mowing in just 20 min., and it saved me a trip to town.”
