Where to get solder tabs
I need to get some small solder tabs for wiring the batteries on my indoor electric model. They are for 50mAh NiCad's. I've searched around online and only found one source, web-tronics, which only had a couple left in stock. Any other sources? Thanks.

Most weld tabs are a nickel alloy, something with a poor conductivity. You can make better tabs for soldering with thin copper. It conducts much better, is universally available and custom sizes are a snip away.
Even better is desoldering braid. Its flat, very flexible and comes pre-fluxed. It conducts like chemically pure copper. Not quite as well as OFHC but you need sensitive equipment to detect the difference. Your solder jobs will add more variance.
