Larger Terminals For Heaters

The standard ones come with the little white ferrules (0.5mm2 I believe), but these are too small for the standard E3D heater cartridge (24V, marked as 25W but more like 40W) wires - The light blue ferrules (Next size up - 0.75mm2 I believe) fit the wires but are a very tight fit into the terminals. Also both sizes of ferrule need to be cut down be a couple of millimeters as the terminals are too short.
If I wasn't using a proper crimper that did a square crimp, I doubt I'd even be able to force them into the terminals at all.
Thanks for pointing this out, e3d must now use slightly thicker wires. We will look at getting short 0.75mm ferrules as those fit well into the 3.5mm terminals ( but the standard lenght ones do need to be cut down after crimping).
