Please help if you can... I want to install an inline 12v on/off switch connecting 8g wire that will not increase resistance (in the 'on' position). No luck locally w/electrical stores. Any ideas, phone #s or links would be appreciated. Thanks, Brian.

That is a big wire, how many amps? Toggle switches (for the house), battery disconnects (auto parts stores) will handle 200-300 amps. The cube automotive relays handle 30 amps. All will be 0 ohms (or very close) when new.

Brain; Im not sure what your application is but you might check out Digikey. They have toggle switches that go to 50 amps with 10 milliohms maximum contact resistence
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around.
