Maybe you could get by with a 25 ton press.

Leafs, the geometry is also very important - much of the effect of good power cables is due to how the geometry achieves common mode rejection (CMR). CMR is relatively easy with two cables, but this changes when dealing with three and adds complications that add cost - and different designers start developing different strategies.
I applaud your efforts in making your own power cable. I bought some #10 litz wire on EBAY for $25 and married it to some hospital grade plugs. The net cost was $40 and it actually sounded better than my buddy's $650 high end power cord. Just goes to show you, it does not have to be expensive to work well.
I'm just curious - is this power cord going straight into a standard wall outlet or conditioner? In either case, I'm not sure that a conductor that size is going to add that much unless you're running it into a very high capacity branch circuit (30 amps or greater). Otherwise you're only attaching a firehose to a drinking straw, so to speak.
