 MAJOR THANKS to everyone who has responded thus far! I appreciate everyone's input.  I've considered using a drill and nibbler, other types of connectors, etc. Everyone's advice is taken into consideration. I'm going to check out some of those websites and machine shops mentioned. I wouldn't have known they existed without your responses. Thanks! In the future, when I get this project completed, I'll surely post photos of the results, whichever course of action I take.

If there are any other suggestions out there...keep 'em coming!  7 3 and THANKS to all! Cheesy

Just an idea, but are there any trade schools in your area? You might try contacting an instructor and see if they have any good students who might be looking for extra credit or practice.

Again, just an idea, I've never actually went this route. Maybe someone reading has and can chime in as to how well it worked or didn't.

You also might look at using Powerpole connectors. They can be stacked and intermixed in many different patterns (think legos), into an assembly that easily mates and can be "keyed" to only fit one way, depending on the pattern. They can be a little harder to crimp than the molex type connections but they're also very cheap if you're keeping the power under 45A.
