I'd like to make up some jumpers with duPont connectors. I have neither a standard tool made for these nor the connector pins/shells to experiment with. I do have this ancient AMP tool that looks like the 'A' jaws might work. A websearch did not turn up anything like specs. saying it'll do this or that connector, too out of date I suppose. I'm not starting a production line, it's just a handful for a project.
I have a similar AMP tool and it is too large. You might just take a pin out of its housing and lay it in the "A" slot and see what it looks like.
I just did that. If anything the 'A' slot looks on the small side. There may be some destructive testing ahead.
Personally I've given up on crimping my own dupont pins. It can be done but its a PIA.
I know. Tiny things and older eyes don't go well together. :-[
I just buy long jumpers of various ends (male & female) and use them, cutting the wire if I need to.
That's what I plan for the ones to be cut off and soldered on one end. I wouldn't bother with this but, for the rest I need some down to an inch and some Y's, none will be over four inches. I know I could splice the Ys with solder but then there's a stiff section and fussing with shrink tube and I want the flexibility since they'll be in a small enclosure.
Been working with RC planes for a few years now and I hate how prominent these connectors are in the hobby world. Who sat down and thought to themselves, "Yoooo I have the perfect idea - lets design a connector that can be reverse-mated AND not make them locking"? Easy to reverse-mate and too easy to disconnect.
