I have never really had to make up connectors to go to circuit boards. When I have had to make connections, it has usually been via screw terminal block. I would like to take the next step towards professionalism (looking at least) ;-)

What do you techs use? The crimp tools I have seen run many hundreds of dollars, a little steep for the home hobbyist. Any particular brands that run economical that can make connectors on 0.100" spacing ? Is the only way to spend the dollars?

Thanks

Shawn

Try Hansen Hobbies at www.hansenhobbies.com. This guy has quality products at a very modest cost. Service is excellent. He likes small orders. You can get most, if not all of your .1 connector needs from him including tools. ( I use the least expensive crimper and it works very well) He also carries the wire in numerous grades and some electronic components. His web site even includes how to's.

Thanks Jim

I did find that site after I posted my question but was still skeptical. I continued to look but could not find anything even close.

Having you say their stuff is good, I placed an order today. :)

Thanks

Cheers,

Shawn

Here is the one I have: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1928

Works a lot better than the simple crimper I was using before.
