Did anyone ever get the details on the $75 crimper for the VP-X terminals?
Thanks

This is the one you can find for around $75, or I can loan you the professional one when you are ready.

If anyone is still looking for the gold plated Molex XL150L terminal pins, I was able to find some available individually and in-stock. This link is the Molex.com page for XL150L terminal pins, several of which are gold plated. I just clicked on the part number and then "check distributor inventory" and found several familiar companies selling them with no minimum order.

I have found gold plated female 18-22 AWG in reasonable quantities But does anyone have a pointer/link for the gold plated female 14-16 AWG terminal pins?

Thank You

Never used them but Heilind Electronics has "MX150L™ Female Terminal for 14-16 AWG Wire, Gold Plated".

Looks like they require 30 for a minimum order at $0.34 each. https://estore.heilind.com/19420-000...20-0003.P.html

We keep these pins in stock. I think we have several thousand at the moment of the gold plated AWG14-16 ones... you can order 1 or as many as you want. I don't know if we have them on our website, but you can always email or call and we'll get you taken care of.

Folks are correct, the gold plated ones are not the easiest ones to find, the tin plated are most common in small qty's...hence the reason we bought these by the entire spool! BTW, we're significantly cheaper than those Heiliand ones (and even cheaper than buying them from VP directly). I'm always perplexed at the amount of digging and time people will spend to find things like this, when an easy call to a dealer usually can solve it in minutes!

Cheers,
Stein

Putting them on your web would be nice in my case. I get tired of trying voice phone, delays, holds, etc.
SteinAir.com was one of the first places I looked and didn't see them on the web site; so kept looking.
I definitely would have ordered from you if I had seen them with price.

Fair point, and we'll endeavor to get them put on their post haste!

For reference we stock the pins (our p/n "VPX-PIN" at $1.14 each), and also full sets of connectors.

Cheers,
Stein

Thank You, that is good to know. It's good to know a reputable dealer has researched the sources for you.

I see SteinAir has them on their website now @ $1.14, but Heilind has them for $0.33 cents each. Not sure what I am missing...
