Step Lines

[* black] Roughen a corner of the spring terminal adjacent to the smaller hole (the one that doesn't have a lip)
[* black] Put a blob of solder over the roughened corner
[* black] Cut four 1m lengths of 20awg stranded wire (two will be used now for the first battery tube and two will be used for the other battery tube)
[* black] Cut four 1m lengths of 20awg stranded wire (two will be used now for the first battery tube and two will be used for the other battery tube)
[* black] Strip about 1cm of insulation and tin one end of each of the four wire lengths
[* black] Put one of the tinned wire ends through the smaller hole (without a lip) on the base of the spring terminal and solder it to the base (basically bend over the solder blob and heat to attach). (NOTE: The spring terminal will get very hot so it’s best to hold is with helping hands or plyers.)
