to make micro connectors
The weather kept me inside this
weekend which gave me time to
make a bunch of much needed micro
connectors for some upcoming projects.
For a few dollars and a little
time you can make a lot of connectors.
Below are the connectors I made
for my lipo's. I also made rxer
connectors and battery charge
connectors as well as twin male
and twin female connectors for
my motor to rxer connections.
A quick summary until I get the
full tutorial done:
I cut a pin pair off of a row
of male connectors. I pull one
male pin out and drill out a hole
to accomodate a female clip I
cut from a jumper plug and stuff
in there. It's a tight squeeze
so doesn't move. The heatshrink
does the rest by holding it all
in place and providing a grip
to seperate the connectors.
I shrink a single piece of heatshrink
over the solid pin of the connector
at the rear to isolate the two
pins from each other. I then shrink
another slightly larger diameter
piece over both of the connectors
pieces at the rear - squeezing
with my fingers as it cools so
the glue grabs both pieces and
locks them in place. I then put
a larger and longer piece over
the whole lot to 'encase' it all.
