    How has it performed? Just curious, I'd have though aluminum too soft to hold up to this sort of thing.

    It works great. I have never had a problem with the strength of the alluminum.

    Yeah, cool, I guess I always forget that there are different grades and tempers of aluminum that make a huge difference (like any other metal). I always think of it as super soft since the aluminum wires I always work with are always super soft.
