    Default My Newest Favorite Tool

    I finally got tired of tinning or just twisting wire ends to push into screw connectors. So I bought a Ferrule Crimping tool kit. I like it.

    Yeah, I was browsing through threads about 2 years ago and saw someone mention this - I use sizes from 14 up to 18 for my all wires that connect into terminals now.

    What's the largest size that fits into the output connectors on Falcon and San Devices controllers?

    I too find ferrules to be a good thing. You can get the ferrules for really cheap on aliexpress.

    I bought a kit from Aliexpress before Christmas and didn't even use it as of yet.
    Crimper and wire stripper in a case for like 35$ The crimper came with 4 sets of jaws to do a variety of connectors.
    Plan is to re-do all connectors for power supplies, looks cleaner when done as well.
