Crimping: The Mechanical Cable Strippers And Crimping Tools

Crimping: The Mechanical Cable Strippers And Crimping Tools

  The professional workflow is dependent professional tools.

  Underestimate the skills, but without the right tools the work is impossible, this is like a playing the piano without … a piano.

  It would be wonderful if all beginning hobbyists are using all professional equipment.

  Of course, as you guess, in a common case it isn’t possible. They are starting with their parent’s old equipment, in case the parents have dealt with this.

  And, as we say words for parents, my father on who I owe the love to electronics, precise hands and eyes, also countless skills, for sorrow aren’t between us.


In Memoriam

My Father Was a Great Radio Amateur, Radio equipment constructor, more than Engineer with “Capital E” just like the hundreds of real engineers.

Part of His Projects:

Many Multi-band Radio Vacuum Tube, Hybrid, and Transistor only transceivers,

Countless concert receivers, many Searching Antenna Receivers,

Many Power Tube based, matched, up to 2 KW output Power Amplifiers,

also Semiconductor PA Amplifiers – Up to 0.5 kW with full un-matching (high SWR) output protection,

Antenna matching devices, Metal Detectors, Dental Health related  Improvements and patents,

Metal Detectors, Dental Health related  Improvements and patents, 

hundred other different projects, etc.

The Last his project was DC to 2 GHz Spectral Analyzer! With the main subject of activity as teaching students and practice as Dentist, He was also great in that.

Behind these few words is staying whole one life, fulfilled with many, many love and gigantic working efforts.

The Radio Callsign LZ1BU is a familiar and valuable for many people doing related to the Radio Amateurs Activity.

  I remember many my father’s stories, but especially one, wires related from the 60s, that the enameled wire has been something like luxe.

  Thin wire (0.1 ~ 0.2 mm ) in diameter for Passive Detector Radio Winded Antenna has been “foundless”.

  Can you presuppose, where the young hobbyists could find the enameled thin area copper wire? You probably will never pick out the answer:

  The Wires is situated Into the defective second side of car or motorcycle high voltage ignition related transformer.

  There is another problem – The transformers was impregnated with the bitumen (asphalt, jews’ pitch). The organic solvent has been used. 

  Well, Today’s also wires related Topic need to start.

  In the last topic, we were talking about the electro-mechanical crimping.

  In our house, garage or our daily hobby routines are comfortable to use, not so expensive handy mechanical tools.

  We are selecting you the crimping related Information
