Part# 10-05470
MFR Model# OLC-2

Overview

The OLC-2 eliminates the needs for soldering, crimps, and expensive connectors, all while creating a perfect connection between two wires. The two wires are stripped 3/8 and then slid into opposing ends of the OLC-2, where they overlap each other. A set screw on the side of the OLC-2 is gently tightened, and presses into the overlapping wires, creating a cold solder joint where the two wires meet. The OLC-2 can also be used to create perfect connections with Thermocouple wire, which means no more bulky TC connections.

Wire Compatibility: Minimum Gauge - 24awg, Maximum Gauge - 16awg

No, it does not take a 3/64 hex driver, there is no such thing and the FAQ is wrong. Below 1/16, English-unit (ANSI/ASME) hex screws and drivers have decimal sizes and the set screw is 0.050 inches. This is indeed a standard size for hex screws and drivers and my discount Stanley socket set came with one. It is necessarily a bit small for some sets but its available.

These worked flawlessly making 8 connections between MGL âKâ EGT probes and MGL E-1 gauge. The gauge now accurately reads EGT temperatures for my Rotax 582 engine.

Great for connecting Thermo couples wire

The use of a non standard set screw is a major drawback. 3/64ths is not in any set I have, and I have 5 sets.

I could not use these since they require an allen wrench in a size that is not generally available. Aircraft Spruce should have a link to and offer the wrench or modify the lksting to state the wrench size required. I went to several stores including a local hardware store that stocks everything and even they would have had to order the wrench. Instead I used the standard crimp connectors and overlapped the wires inside the jount instead.
