Straight-cut tin snips is best https://amzn.to/2VQvHOJ

If you're only cutting a small amount, regular scissors will probably work fine but will dull out eventually.

Then spotweld a new fuse with its surround into place.

True, but i think both sides would be better for the pack aesthetics

Also if going to the effort of making my busbars for one side I might as well just do both sides the same.
Would be great if they could make one specifically for the negative end with a wider opening.

You know you are a battery enthusiast when pack aesthetics become a thing lol.

I think it's more like OCD rather than enthusiasm or maybe it could be a little of both! LoL

I emailed batteryhookup twice last week asking if these are pure nickel and what thickness. No response. Anyone know?
