If they weren't ment for more than one conductor then you shouldn't be able to fit two wires in them.

Yeah 30 years for us to call it hack.

Who in the world stocked a contactor that small that didn't have lugs? I haven't seen one that wouldn't take stranded on the terminals made in the last 40 years.

30 years in operation doesn't make it right. You sound like the comments I hear from customers occasionally. "It's always worked this way. Why do I need to change it now?"

I try to buy the DP contactors with the set screw lugs. I've seen too many burnt connections on the type you used with the screw-crimp on connection.
