What AWG size are you looking for? I order 8AWG x3 from taiwan for an automotive power supply I manufacture in small quantities. I had a difficult time finding those in the beginning myself. I wanted the thick gold plated bar type with allen drive screws not a cheesy screw and plate terminal. I get them for around $2 a piece with shipping. The caveat is that the case size is qty 500 so thats the minimum I can order. They also charge me an extra $100 if my total order is less than $2000, so I normally have to find other things I need at the same time.. I bought allen wrenchs for $0.04 a piece.. I hate it when allen wrenches dont come with a product that requires them.

If you need a couple 8AWG x 3 I can hook you up. They are PCB edge bolt in type. 3 exposed (no solder mask) rectangles are needed on the PCB with holes in the center. The bars are bolted from the bottom of the PCB.

If you are looking for other configurations I can get you the list of blocks they offer and can order up some samples. If you are looking for anything in quantity we might be able to work out some sort of joint order so I do not have to shell out $2k or an extra $100 everytime I need 1 part or another.

whooahhh 500 pc minimum? thats alot...could you tell me what these connectors are actually called in the industry?

being that i live in thailand, i might be able to source these out through a distributor, but i need the correct terminology for the item....

it might be kinda rough going half/half in an order since i dont live in the states...

i need these for a capacitor bank using cyclon cells with sealed lead/acid battery array...

Terminal Blocks.. That caused me some grief too. Hard to search for. There must be some other descriptor.

Attached is a picture of the one I use.

In the datasheet.. It says. 8 AWG x 3 bolt down terminal block.

If you only need a couple, buy a broken amp from a repair shop, pawn shop or flea market and salvage them.
