Is the copper wire that makes up this #2 wire cable 8 or 9 pieces of wire (more or less), twisted together like a piece of #2 THHW or the extremely fine, almost hair-like copper wire? What is stamped/printed (every few inches) on the outside of the cable like the fore-mentioned #2 THHW wire? What amperage is it rated at? Does it require special connectors? And lastly, would I buy a 50 foot length, cut it in half and and use the two pieces for my welding lead and my ground wire, if I wanted 25' leads?
The Anchor #2 Welding Cable - 50 ft 2-50 is a very flexible cable made of extremely fine copper wires. The cable is stamped CCI Royal/Excelene 2 welding cable 600v -50C to 105 C made in USA.The 50 ft length of this cable is rated at 200 amps.It will accept all types of connectors.. If you cut the 50 ft length into 2 pieces you will have two 25 ft cable lengths.
