    Agreed. Or have the manufacturer field repair it, if it can be done. I'm guessing you can have a really spectacular failure in a device moving 5 kW through it if it doesn't go back together right.

    the ends of the resistors made this way just have terminals that are clamped on to the wire. They work fine. No reason a proper splice would not work.
    Does anyone have a schematic or picture of this thing?
