Crimpers

Recently got myself a crimper for connectors from Panda
Image
Made in Taiwan and built very sturdy
Image
I still have another which I use which also came from panda as a set with a stripper sexyd>>>>>> (wire stripper :wtf: )
Image
The difference is the end product it creates.
Image
The one with the blue connectors was cut with my old one and crimps by applying pressure in the middle of the connector, hence the dot.
The red one was made by the new, notice the even pressure made on the connector all the way through
Image
The ends also shows the difference a good tool makes
Image
Another connector without sleeves

Not cheap but you cannot expect to pay fifty for a hundred worth of material... Satisfaction is what matters to me. And quality is what satisfies.....

That sure is a very specialized tool (i.e. will be seldomly used.) Like snap ring pliers etc., most of the time it feels like it never earns its keep, but when you need it, it does the job best.

Didn't post it but this week's accomplishments was rebuilding a metabo router (dry rotted cord/bearings) and repairing 2 earphones after googling it up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYH1KZ_14uE (Shame then, that I have thrown away ~4 earphones, some of which were sennheisers!!!)

You might want to stock up on heat shrink tubing too sir timb in your electronics/electrical organizer if you're making electrical connections every so often. :thumbup:
woodworking = problem solving.

Thanks for the tip Harry, got those shrink tubes from 3mm to 12mm on hond most of the time.
Too bad with the headphone, really simple fix...

Primarily bought for use to wire my cnc, the crimper gets used as I upgrade some other wiring connections.
My extension cords would benefit from this. So....
From this...
Image
I added some eye connectors...
Image
Then shrunk the tubes into place
Image
Then installed back into the plug
Image
Image
The opposite end also gets an upgrade...
From this, which isn't really that bad...
Image
To these..
Image
Image
And before trying them out, testing prevents any danger...
Checking for any short
Image
And checking for continuity
Image
Then all is well and time to move to several more.....

The crimper costs around 3.2k. The second question di ko maget....? It is ratcheting though.

Totally different brader. Yung width ng dedicated crimper is thicker, hence it makes the crimp area better. Which in turn makes a sturdier more solid connection.
Second, the one with the red handle tends to crimp the center portion thus creating a dot in the connector and squeezes the connector out of shape. While the other crimps from the sides keeping the connector's shape.
The one with the green handle has a ratcheting feature which only releases when the crimping process is complete, it is handy especially when crimping thick connectors by allowing you to use both hands after the ratcheting motion has locked the connector in place.
I have it with me now in the shop, best to see it in action....
