I have 2 pairs of the Trim Flush Cutters that Lutro sells. One for wire and one for sleeving. I cut those terminals with the one i use for wire. Just use some sharp snips or scissors or something. Should cut right off. If not, it's really easy to just bend back and forth at the spot you want it to separate

I'm pretty sure I just wore out a relatively new pair of flush cutters trying to cut these things. It was a set I only used previously for cutting sleeving. Two or three snips on this reel and now it can't cut them off clean enough to fit into a connector, and no amount of bending is ever going to snap the terminal off the reel. It will only break at the hole between terminals which is no help at all.

Also tried with a brand spanking new pair of Craftsman wire cutters and they can't even come close to cutting them off clean enough either. I'm at a total loss as to how they are supposed to come off there with what tool. ???

Yeah I suspect that's where these are going to go unless someone offers up a solution.

Thanks both of you for your replies though.

Weird. They look exactly like the ones i got from Lutro. 

 

The hole between the terminals is where i was telling you to break it. Remember, i said i have TWO pairs of flush cutters. I don't use my sleeving cutter for anything except sleeving. I use my other one for wires and sometimes those terminals. I'm suprised you're having so much trouble. Maybe those are harder to work with than the ones Lutro sells.

 

I've only bought those terminals from FCPU and Lutro. The FCPU ones were normal where the strip was at the top. The Lutro terminals looked just like those. So i figured that those were the way they were supposed to come. I have a 250 strip coming from Digikey later in the week. Let's see which ones i end up with.....

Well, I remembered that I do have a handful of some of the fittings I got from Lutro0 and you're right, they do look to be the exact same thing, just he cut them into strips of 10 to fill my order. I only had 30 or so female fan terminals from him but that's neither here nor there as I sure didn't have any better luck with them.

I was, however, able to dig up just enough female fan terminals that I got from ModDIY a while back to complete today's project. They come only attached to the strip on the ends and wiggle right off.

But I have a LOT more planned to do in the works and for now I'm stuck with all these molex female fan terminals that I'm unsure how to make use of them.

I guess flush cutters are going to be the best tool for the job, but the cheap one I have sure seemed to get dull really quick trying it. Perhaps it's time to grab a couple new ones from Lutro0.

I recommend the Knipex 78 61 125 side cutters. They're quite expensive but have hardened steel blades which are massively tougher than the cheaper side cutters. I have a pair of them and both still work perfectly after nearly 2 years of hard use. After saying that I use proper wire cutters to cut my wire which saves a lot of wear and tear on them.

Thanks for that! I actually had just bought a pair of Klein flush cutters for $8 ea on eBay just seconds before seeing your post. Not sure how well they're going to work but they do look to be a step up from what I had before which were no-name china-made get-what-u-pay-fors that I think I paid ~$3 or so for, but I have to say that they did do a really clean job of cutting sleeving. At least the Klein's do say they are 'heat-treated for increased durability".

However, after seeing your post I did a quick search on eBay and found a new set of those Knipex 'Electronic Super Knips' for 25.50 + free shipping, and after comparing that price to all the others I saw I snagged it up. I don't really see me using the Knipex to try to cut these terminals out, but now I sure won't hesitate to use one of the Klein's to do it, and if they still give me a fight with a new set of cutters, then in the bin they'll have to go.

Aaaand in any case went ahead and placed an order to FCPU for a bunch of their female fan pins just to be on the safe side.

Does anyone know what tool to use to crimp these DIY Serial ATA SATA Data Cable Connector w/ Locking Clips?

The only tool I can find for it is one of these, and I can't afford one.

I could be wrong, but I assume you would solder, not crimp, something like that. In any case it's above my pay grade.

No, even Asus Sata Data leads are crimped:


The point is that these are being sold without any apparent way of applying them.

I'm aware retail sata data wires are machine crimped, but unless you have access to one of those machines or some tool I've never heard of the only way I can see attaching the DIY connector would be to solder it under a magnifying lamp.

Only thing I can think of it a pair of tiny needle or tweezer nosed pliers, something like this
