does anyone know where I can get a Male/Female/Etc Molex pin remover so that I can sleeve my power supply but at a regular local store.
It pains me to have to purchase online for a good price but $10 for shipping so unless its my only solution I will get a sunbeam kit on xioxide which seems the cheapest at $12.99

If you don't find a shop (i don't know any sorry) try finding an old radio controlled car (broken is best) and take the aerial out of the handset (the metal type you pull out), pull the various sized metal tubes apart and find the one that best fits your needs.

Worked great for me

If there is there a microcenter near where you live, they sell them for about $8 but they are pretty rare at the one near me.

RadioShack should carry them. Given that they now carry TT stuff. Maybe BestBuy, or CompUSA?

tried radioshack and nothing, if I order one from svc I would like one that does not destroy the molex pins when removing.

I use one of the cheap one's that has a male on one end and a female on the other....I only use the female, just work it in small circles, takes a while longer then big circles but the pins come out OK.You might trash a couple before you get the hang of it though...
...The male pins I use a little screw-driver to remove them....EDIT: You only have to work it in circles if it doesn't pop out the first try...Just pull on the connected wire when you push down on the pin with the remover....

Use fine needle-nose pilers. The molex pins are held by two very small metal flaps. Use the pilers to depress the flaps and pull the pin out.
