I have invented a new type of electrical connector. The connection of two wires is accomplished by mechanically compressing a conductive (copper) spiral around each wire. I am planning to use Polycarbonate as the insulator/mechanical housing. These connections need to withstand creep, fracture etc for many years - 50 to 100 years probably. This invention is patented.

Please check over the invention before commenting. It can be seen at: melni.org
