i had a huge amount of trouble at first, too. Then I figured out a little trick. If you haven't already tried it, make sure you slip in the staples on either side, push them in a bit, then push the wire up (opposite way it pulls out), then the staples should drop down just a little farther. Then, the wire should come out with a little tug. Hope that helps.

ya I got the "female pin" part where it looks like a little square but the other side where it's a rod looking pin is giving me a headache

[edit] WOW, this has got to be the most tedious project I've ever done lmao, how far do you guys go up on the cable with the heatshrink? where the pin crimp is at? cause if I do that I can't seem to fit the cable back into the little square hole, ends up being too thick

not sure exactly what you mean by square vs rod. any chance you could post some pics of what you're talking about?

as for how far up, I just pre-cut all my heatshrink to about 1/2". I place the sleeving itself about 1/2 way down the solid part of the pin, then line up the edge of the heatshrink with the edge of the pin (end that goes into the connector). That way, the heatshrink has about half the bare pin to tighten around, and the rest is on the sleeving.

ya i can't do that with this MDPC stuff, it's triple braided so it's quite thick and won't fit back in the hole

Quick question guys, If I were to start selling 1/8 / 1/4" multifilament sleeving (almost cloth feel, and very tightly woven), would anyone buy it?

I would be charging $.25-$.40 per foot depending on lengths. I'm not trying to low ball any other sellers, I just have a giant spool I need to size down.

I might need to get rid of some of my clean cut also

well, a couple hours later an my 20 pin is like half sleeved. Got the hang of the staples though. I do wish the clean cut was a bit less shiny, but for the price i can't complain too much.
