Hi fellows,  Regarding Valiant Shunts,  Heres the easy way to get  her done.
 
{1} acquire some nichrome wire
{2} Go to Radio shack or your junk box and find some  small plastic  
terminal connectors blocks, the ones where you place the wire inside and tighten  
the screw to make connections.
{3}  Cut off from the plastic terminal block a set of two  poles.
{4}   on both poles of the connectors place two stiff copper  wires about  
1" long and screw them down tight
{5}  place a suitable U  shaped hunk   of  Nichrome wire into both 
terminals of the other side of  the terminal block.  
{6}  solder the two stiff copper wires into the Valiants connection  point 
for the shunt.
{7}  Using a current meter inserted at a appropriate spot, cut and  prune 
the Nichrome wire till the current becomes correct on the Valiants  meter.  
 
 BINGO, DONE    NO SOLDERING NEEDED TO THE NICHROME  WIRE.
