    Hi guys,

    as mentioned in another thread, I decided to buy a special cable crimping nipplers.

    Today was the first use, except some test crimpings before.

    The task was to crimp the very small male connector pins as used in multi-pole connectors (e.g. handle bar, etc.)

    The result is awesome !
    Like the original quality !
    Absolute no comparison to any cheap crimping, or more exactly: squeezing tool.

    I am happy now to have these nipplers ๐Ÿ™‚

    Have a look:
    Picture 3 shows a detail, when a connector is inserted and the nipplers are spanned a little bit. It is self-fixing and hold the connector in this position. A stripped cable can be inserted, positioned and then press the nipplers firmly. It will only release and open again, if the pressure was high enough to achieve the desired result.

    Cheers, Michael

    I am impressed with that tool Michael. Have you posted details? I think I am going to get one as I have very little faith in the standard crimp type connectors

    It is 40,- Euros and there are three different interchangeable brackets for different connector types included.

    Crimped two blue coated connectors today (6,3mm flat connector) after changing the brackets, result is perfect as well.

    You need to do some test crimping to understand how it works and how to handle it, but final result is really impressive !!!

    Cheers, Michael
