  • Wire crimper advice needed

    I'd like to get a wire crimper so if I want to replace the connector on a servo wire I can.

    Motion doesn't sell a crimping tool so what do you guys all use? Model number or picture would help.

    DK....the crimping tool you need is for JST-SH connectors.
    IWISS is a good tool and they also rebrand for HobbyKing (which is out of stock)
    I bought the HK 4-5 years ago and still works great.

          The Hansen is a fine tool Lon. It is the SnapOn of the crimpers whereas the IWISS is the Craftsman.

            Thanks guys, What got me started on this was I saw a Hobby King video tonight on how to use their tool. Of course as OV10 pointed out HK is out of stock. I looked at Amazone but could not find one like the HK tool. Thanks OV10 for giving me a ling to the IWISS tool, I got it ordered and it should be here Thursday.

            Lon thanks for the video link, I'll watch it here in a few minutes.

              DK.......double check that you ordered the correct one. A couple minutes after I posted, had to correct the link cause I referenced the incorrect one initially.

                Thanks OV10, I cancelled the order I placed and placed a new one with the correct part.

                  I was afraid that you had ordered before I caught my mistake. Too many windows open when I was comparing capabilities. Glad your all fixed up.

                    Yep, Hansen Deluxe kit is the best deal to get started making your own connectors. It's what I used to make all those short connectors I did for you. It takes a few tries when you first get started and you'll mess up a few but eventually you get it down and you'll be a wire crimping machine...

                    This is my Hansen kit I've had for a few years, Still going strong. The red handled crimper doesn;t come with the kit. It was a special order small crimper from Japan for doing receiver satellite and telemetry connectors.
