Well seeing that there are some reading this who -might- think that this

standard insulated crimps and into larger uninsulated crimps.
What is the conductor size and what type of earth are you proposing to

I think electrical earths require a continuous conductor between the

Er, bullet connectors are *supposed* to be pull-apartable and I'm concerned they may do so accidentally thereby disconnecting the earth.
230V motor grounding, 2.5mm^2 x-section earth wire. For the purposes of this temporary lash-up, I'm using the blue connectors. They ARE crimped properly, but It just doesn't seem right somehow to make this arrangement permanent.
