crimping and wire termination items

here is what i used to terminate all wires.
i also place a drop of anti oxidant on the wires.

this why i know i will get maximum wire contact and keeps all fray wires in check. each ferrule is made for a specific wire size

here also is my crimper for spade and inline connectors

Crimpers and Connectors...

Nice setup! Find it all in one place or did you put it together yourself?

That is a nice setup. Here is plenty of information about wire termination by a recognized expert. He also has a separate one for battery cable terminations.

Take it from someone who makes a living with a crimp tool. ( live and die by one) the Goal with any good crimp tool is to provide Side support during the crimping process and the crimp tool should not release the crimp till it has made a full crimping cycle. The one listed below does these things

I added to my kit a heavy duty crimper, various shrink covers and a heat gun to shrink the covers.

Your kit looks good!

Do your self a favour for the future

For a trouble free electric future,
use copper conectors not soft alloys then crimp and solder then heat shrink with a dab off carbon grease on the mating surfaces for excelent conductivity switches as well. Dont run the solder up the flexable part off the wire thoe..keep that part max flexable.

If your planing flicking on your modern trailer that has been bounced a shaken and shudded down the road to some other poor sucker then good for you!
Or you will be forever wobbling with your old wires.
Do it once do it right! Even If not for your self.

As a LONG time electronic engineering type, ham radio operator, and Boeing retiree, soldering an already gas-tight crimp connection is a total waste of time, and only increases the possibility that the wire may be 'work hardened' due to the stiffening effect of the solder wicking into the wire strands. It's darn near impossible to prevent solder from going where you don't want it to go.

Properly made, crimped connections with decent Marine or Aerospace rated connectors, a ratchet crimper, and properly sized and insulated stranded wire are the most reliable. A nice adhesive-lined shrink tubing is a nice add-on if the connections might get moisture exposure.

Soldering is no longer the best way to go.

Isn’t it a basic law of the universe that another project taken on requires at least one new tool and three trips to the big box home improvement store to get all the right components?
Seems to be true in my corner of the universe

Law? I thought it was, "New Project" was a coupon and budget line item for, "new tool(s), new carry bag, enough consumables to re-do a rally's worth of issues".

Why I bought the 1-ton .
