Default Battery filing jig?

Is there a company that makes one for the 3800s? It would be nice to have a device that made perfect strait edges and kepted the angle perfect for each cell. Something that would make it easier and faster.

the best way to do cells i have found is to sho goo them before you solder.. I use an old chassis plate.. glue the cells, and place them in the slots.. let them dry then solder them together.. doing it this way glues them to a perfect fit for the car..

Now i run hyperform stuff to, so mine are factory glued.. they do a killer job to..

I normally just use a 3mm thick steel plating clamp on top and under the chassis. I them make sure that I leave about 2-3mm spacing on the top and run a dremel and always does a good job. Hopefully you can understand what I m trying to say.

Like others have said, the Dean's battery jig works fine.

Or are you asking about something that actually holds the cell while you scuff or sand the poles or the battery before you solder?

If you are, I cannot understand why you would ever come close to needing one. I just hold the cell in one hand and the dremel in the other...perfect every time.

He's not talking about either, he's asking about battery SLOT filing on the car's chassis, not about assembling packs. And as far as I know, no, there is no jig for that, everyone I know of(myself included) has just done it by trial & error....

It's laboring and I wish companies would just do it. It can't be that expensive. I would pay an extra $10-15 for the kit to have it done perfect.
