I like that you needed a micrometer to show how thick they are.

Glad you got them home without short-circuiting!

In all seriousness, that many amps, with terminals that close - be extra careful with anything conductive.

One thing I like about group 31 batteries is that their terminals are farther apart than my socket wrench is long! To me, that's a great safety feature!
