    Best price on weatherpack pins and connectors?

    So where do you guys buy your weatherpack pins and connectors from? Who has the best price? I'm wanting just the standard round male and female style. Wanting to keep a small stock of the pins to replace broken or bent pins in the connectors, instead of having to cut and splice in one from a salvaged connector. Also wanting to pick up one of the proper crimping tools for the pins too, as well as some of the plastic connectors. I already have one of the extractor tools.

    I used WayTek.

    http://www.waytekwire.com/products/

    They also have the crosslinked wire that has the insulation that doesn't get brittle as easily as regular wire does. It's rated for higher temps.

    I bought a bunch of connectors and pins all at once and put them in one of those craft storage bin/carriers. Don't forget the pin removal tool. $5 or so and worth it!

    I use a regular crimper to manually crimp my connections. If I'm in the mood, I solder them, too.

    Found this place with google. Seems like pretty good prices.

    But also found lots of the terminals and kits on amazon for some pretty decent prices.
    Gonna do a little more looking around then order some up.

    I use Waytek for most of my stuff. Local stores for smaller quantities or items I need "right away" but I usually have to do all the legwork so I can call with a part no.

    There's an electronics surplus place near me that often has great deals on the correct ratcheting crimpers if you're looking.

    I made my own "kit" with parts from Waytek. That way I could get just the connectors I wanted and not have 10 sets of some weird connector that I'd never use. Don't forget to get EXTRA pins (male and female) and extra grommets. You can always use extras.

    I'd be intrested depending of cost? Just another tool in the box... one of those links above had one for $38 which is about third of what I'm used to seeing.

    I seem to have so many extra wires, parts, plugs and pieces I usually just solder and shrink wrap the wire after installing a used pin... not to mention the 1000 or so pin pigtails I bought from Dave awhile back I'm still using.
