A word on scotch locks,
people tend to use the splice ones as that's what they want to achieve however these only work if joining two wires of a roughly similar diameter (within the rage of each size) so often the finer dropper is loose
If you are going to use them the T tap version works better and gives a point on the bus that a standard spade crimp can fit to.
or if your using the splice that you stick with in its design range

Thanks for that info. They do look better but the drop wires although by need they can be thinner in practice I'll probably use the same thickness wire ( it is my favourite price after all ).
