AMP crimp-tool 45099
« on: April 18, 2010, 08:29:59 PM »
I was at a garage-sale and came away with an AMP crimp-tool 45099.

I thought it did spade-crimps, but instead it crimps those pin/socket things you insert in DB-9 etc connectors.

Is it any use to me? To anybody?

I found that some of the generic dsub crimpers also worked on the molex KK or amp CTA connector series as well. 
I'm not sure if it works as well with a more specialized tool though.

Not to hijack the thread, but the old AMP crimper I have LOOKS like it will crimp the Molex KK series (2759 terminals for one...), but it is too tight.
I looked and looked and found some crimpers that would work, still for almost $200...

But then, I found that the Radio Shack "D-Sub Crimp Tool" works PERFECTLY, and it's $10.00!
Why does it happen? Because it happens - Roll the bones...
