It has 6061 aluminum bars in it.
Why do you believe it is 6061?
That's kind of a generic type of AL considering all the types made. Seems like with all the different types, someone must make something special.
I'm not keen on the idea of using aluminum....
Home Despot and others...
Me too, about the AL.
600W and 1000W inverter, and a couple hundred watts of solar?
I was thinking more along the lines of parts for those obnoxious car stereos. Retailers like best buy, or "stereo parts to PO your neighbors at 2:30AM with crappy music and rattling windows dot com".
I like ebay because of the photos, but.... here is a quick copy/paste with some pricing, they all have a cover, and these were all on the 1st page of my search.
STINGER SPD5210. SKU: SPD5210. Fused Distribution: ANL. Input Gauge (s): 0 Gauge. Inputs: 1. Output Gauge (s): 4 Gauge. Outputs: 2. ($30)
AudioPipe PB-1448. 1 in 4 out configuration. 4/6/8 gauge compatible (IN). 8/10/12 gauge compatible (OUT) . ($13)
AUDIOBAHN ADB48 CAR AUDIO STEREO WIRE DISTRIBUTION BLOCK (1) 4GA IN (4) 8GA OUT ($12)
Platinum Car Stereo Distribution Block. One 4 Gauge Input. Four 8 Gauge Outputs. Works with Power or Ground Wires. Platinum Finish with Gold Hardware. ($8)
All prices were "Buy Now" and included 'free S&H'.
Be hard pressed to find a metal retailer who would SHIP enough material to make a bus bar for $8 in S&H?
That's how I was thinking,
