Yes. I use a "Y" connector with both wires cut. Works great and since Y connectors are cheap no biggie.

Well anything over 80 amps or so isn't really necessary. The reason is simple. When you get to these high amps you really should not use an in-line meter anymore. You really need a shunt or clamp...

I used to pin mine together and use the table on the sander to keep the bottom rib square. Make sure the pin heads are flush - or the stack will rock.

Slow and steady to get good results.
