I thought you soldered the wire, then the tabs were bent over the insulation for mechanical strength.
thats what I've always done, I didn't know you could crimp 'em!I thought you soldered the wire, then the tabs were bent over the insulation for mechanical strength.
Do you do that even if the instructions say to solder?I've been using my co-worker's Snap-On like the one shown. It turns the little tabs over the insulation and conductor nicely. Soldering would be superfluous. The crimp is stronger than the wire (14-18AWG) itself.
Is that automotive? Some sort of DIN connector?
I gotta crimp those^. The only place I can find the crimper, besides online, is from the Snap-On truck (yuck!). Any suggestions?
Those pins were never, ever intended to be soldered. If you are a purist, purchase the origional manufacturers crimp tooling. Using the OEMs tooling is the only way to insure a gastite connection.
If not, just mash 'em with your nines! Can you spell callbacks?
In my other life, those comm people had a saying 'if it touches, it talks'. I long ago divested myself from those guys!

If you can match up ANY AMP or Molex connector with it's proper pin, connector body and crimper in any catalog anywhere you are a certified genious, and my hat goes off to you.There is an AMP tool for that crimp. Look in the AMP catalog. Check the Molex connector section.
