    Won't have to wait for the stuff from me. Went out this am. 2nd day!
    If you like the audio recorder we could start a thread!
    I never hacked the processor just the record chip.

    It's like Xmas here...........:)
    Knew I had cases of these euro terminal strips stashed away.
    Opened the first box and it was full of these assorted terminals.:eek:
    Finding things lost for 20 years thanks to AAC...............................

    A few years ago I invented a new prep tool for terminating coaxial cable.
    I have boxes of parts and pliers type tools used for research and testing.

    Those crimpers are cheap tools for crimping rg59/6 connectors.
    Just found them today or I could have squeezed one in your package.:(

    Again it's more parts that can't compete with China prices.

    Was unable to market the tool.
    Might start a thread to see if there are any pro cable installers on AAC to dazzle.:p

    And you have exactly the same crimpers I showed.

    They are NOT a joke. They work very well. One stroke and the job is done correctly with no guessing about how hard to crimp the connector.

    See if this video still works.

    My 9 year old grand daughter.

    Unique tool inserts the connector for crimping.
    The hardest job in cold weather.
    This tool both inserts and seats in one motion.
    I would not be caught without one.

    Total sales to date = 0 :mad:

    I'm sorry.:p
    You just surprised me.

    For that type of connector it's still the best.

    I just haven't seen one in a while.

    Didn't mean to come off as serious.:p
