    Copper Tube Bus?

    Can someone tell me why this is not a good idea? Seems awesome to me… First, take a copper tube with an ID of around .135 (for 12-14awg wire). Drill it like this:



    Next, feed the wire through, like this, and crimp and solder:



    Slip the whole thing through some heat-shrink and you have a bulletproof, low-profile bus. No?

    I want to use this for the balance leads for the Turnigy packs. There are copper tube buses available for huge industrial applications, but I haven't been able to find anything for small gauge wire... seems like it would be a pretty slick way to make up pigtails. Am I missing something?
