edit: problem fixed by moving die over. Yay back to testing my patience.

Awesome to hear you got it fixed.

Finally arrived and I can now answer your question. They're crimps, but you either need a mighty expensive tool to work them with or an electron microscope!

Thanks for getting back on this. I'm guessing there is a tool specifically for those. It would have to crimp them all at once.

Yep. Place the cable in the tool; the tool finds 8 wires, finds 7 pins, places 8 wires in 7 pins at correct position, finds 28 crimp prongs, crimps the prongs and gives you back the cable - but only if you pay it $10!!

NSIS, but if the RJ45 crimpers can manage it, I don't see why not.

I wish you were right, but I don't think so.

So I'm putting on the cable combs I got from lutro0 in the mail today and I begin unpinning the sleeved cables. I'm guiding the combs over the cables when I notice there is blood in one spot on the paracord, and in another, and another, and another. I was about ready to post my work and I ruined it! Those terminals are sharp!

I've had blood stains on sleeved cables before. Soak the whole cable in soapy water, then let dry in the sun for a day.

So I just finished sleeving a 24 pin connector and the missing wire is really throwing me off.
Anyone know of a clever way to fake it? Or can I just put a wire in it?
