Ummmm, OK. Makes perfect sense. Anyways...


Webster, I found that ConnectorZ one for even cheaper on jabtech

http://www.jab-tech.com/ConnectorZ-Molex-Crimp-Tool-pr-2174.html

This thread has a bunch of people using these crimps with good results. The dab of solder method also doesn't sound like a bad way to do it.

I might just go to Home Depot and grab one since I can easily take it back. Being able to feel it in person would be awesome.

If you get a crimper for 20 bucks it can't be good. Look at all the trouble I am having with a 40 dollar crimper..absolutely trash. Does it work if you don't tug on the crimp or ever want to pull the crimp back out...absolutely. But if you're going to sleeve and crimp all new connectors spend the money on a quality product. LutroOs tool is half what it should be. The man is doing all of us a favor and I would buy from him over any other company who is just trying to make a buck. Save yourself the headache and the time and spend your money on something actually worth something. I don't have much experience in sleeving/crimping but after wasting about 40 pins I know now to get quality products from people with experience.

Speaking of crimping tools. I'm going to post an email chain I had with Performance PC's about their crimp tool. I responded 7 days ago and haven't heard anything back so I assume they just put it in their trash folder. I don't know much about PPCS, as this was my first purchase from them. For what it's worth, here you go...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

> Hi. This morning i received a crimp tool I ordered, Deluxe Molex Hand Crimp Tool (CRIMPER-DX), which I'd like to return.
>
> The crimp tool isn't broken, it's just junk. It will "crimp" a contact in the wire, but the connection is far from secure. I can easily pull the wire from the contact after its been crimped. I can see now why this tool was only 25.00.
>
> I understand I'll have to pay the return shipping which makes returning it almost not worth the time, but since I have no use for the tool, I guess I have no other option. I ask that you waive the 20% restocking fee. Even though its only 5 dollars, that will only leave me with 25% of my money returned. Also, the fact that the tool is worthless is no fault of my own. I shouldn't be penalized for that.

> Thank you

to me

Dear .....

We sell thousands of these tools and have never had even one complaint. They are awesome tools and work perfectly and are used by all our techs here. If you are having problems then you are just not using it right. You are welcome to return it but we cannot waive any restock fees.

In order for us to issue an RMA# Please fill out the Return Merchandise Authorization form on the website home page. It will be in the right sidebar under the Policies Section. Or click here:

RMA Form

Once you have submitted the RMA form we will check it over to see if it qualifies for an return. If it does qualify we will email you the RMA#.


You would then print this out and then send back the RMA email form with the return(s). PLEASE ALWAYS write you RMA # on at least two (2) sides of the package so it is clearly visible.


Any package sent to us without this proper procedure being done or without the form returned will be refused back to the customer.

Thank you.

Best Regards,

Customer Service

Thank you for the timely response, and also for warning me about your technicians using this particular tool. I'll make sure to never buy any crimped cable from PPCS in the future.

Also, the fact that you blame the customer for not doing it properly rather than admitting the tools you sell are inferior speaks volumes of you and your company. I'll be sure to let everyone in the multiple PC modding forums I visit know of your "Customer Service."

I'm planning on keeping the crimp tool, not because it's of any value to me, but more to remind me of why I'll never visit the PPCS website again. A trophy of shame if you will. In addition, I feel that it is my duty to keep this tool out of the hands of any customer who wants a reliable crimp.

I'm going waste another pin and crimp it to some 18AWG cable and attach those pictures for clarification. Please forward to your technical department as apparently they have had success using this Fisher-Price tool. If they can find flaw in my technique, I'd be more than willing to accept constructive criticism. A "you're doing it wrong" won't be sufficient.

Thanks again for your time. I hope you have a good day.

Performance PC's is usually very good. I've ordered many thousands of dollars of gear from them over the years, and they usually stand behind the products they sell. But having said that, I tend to lean towards buying quality tools once and have them last a long time.

I've bought and used $20, $40, $70, and (used, not bought) $300 crimpers, and I must say, the more you spend, the better.

Personally, for sleeving tools, I'd go to either MDPC or Lutro0 Customs and pay a little extra and get a high quality set of tools. I have a crimper from MDPC (before I found out Lutro0 opened his shop) and also have strippers, a molex pin tool, a paracord sleeving tool, sleeve measure tool, and diagonal cutters from Lutro0.

Sure I paid about $150 or so for it all, but they greatly speed up my sleeving process, but more importantly, they make a quality cable and will last a long time ... and will be used on many sleeving jobs and builds.

Granted, you don't have to go as nuts as I have, but I would give serious consideration to at least getting a good quality crimper and molex pin tool.

They responded to my first email the next day so I assumed since it's been a week, they've moved on. I've chalked it up to a life lesson - pretty much as Knucklehead stated. You get what you pay for.

I have had nothing but good luck with PPCs. Good customer service good products. We have the same product. Although it is true that a lot of people have had success..we unfortunately have not. Like I said I would like to see this crimper used and tugged on. Maybe our calibration is wrong? I'm not trying to pick sides or anything but just trying to find a solution and or compromise to those of us who have this same problem.
Although my crimper was from FTWPC its obviously the same product. I would try emailing PPCs again and try a different approach. I understand your frustration as it frustrates me as well, but this tool is everywhere. Now my plan is to try another crimper and just chew up the cost.
I'll get that crimper ordered and see how it goes.

Just try replying, no harm done. You've decided to accept that they're ignoring you while this may not be true
