 I hope everybody is aware today the 23 is Fibonacci Day today

how come ... 11 equals 2 and 12 equals 3 hence 11 23 or Nov 23rd!
not much WW going on busy head down unravelling the confusing world of JST connecters in the grandsons
 Ride in Kids Car.
 Its riddled with them  .. and I mean riddled with them. I even saw a USB connector! and an MP3
No doubt all you RC and PC SME's are familiar with amount of different variants of JST connectors going.
I bet drones are full of them too!


Have you ever seen how small these little suckers are?
with one hand holding the crimpers and the other a magnifying glass how are you supposed to orient the contact in the flipping wire!

After hitting the online stores I have almost got one connector done, not forgetting fulling the waste bin with miss crimps !!


What microscopic eyed person actually designs this stuff?... haven't they heard of Anderson or Molex Connectors !!
Arrg... give me a piece of  wood and a screw any day!

I'd love to have n assortment like that for all the times I've had to work with those crazy things. I'm a Molex guy, these things with their 0.1mm size increments are nuts, but fortunately i'm also a solder-it guy and just skip the crimp.
I hear you Rob!  Those little bitty connectors and the crimp tools are a PITA!
Where I used to work, we had people who made harnesses all day long. 22Ga wire, and as many as 101(?)- memory fails me- wires at each connector. I'm more of a hammer kind of guy. I wouldn't even attempt Splint's basket weave boxes, for example. I have enough problems with my hands that I'm not even carving these days...or hammering.

Some are 11 pin some 7 pin and then all the way  down to just 2!

When I first encountered this sort of thing, it was back in the early 80s, and one of my friends who knew I restored old tube radios thought I might be interested in a Technics from sometime recent(which to be fair, would have rawked, had I managed to repair it).

“No thanks. The god of tiny parts smiles upon the Japanese, and not upon me.”

May you have the day you deserve!

Learning from years of working with electronics, I tend to collect all the small harnesses and other small doo-dads before scrapping old tape drives, etc.

The harnesses are nice if I need "that" connector as it already has wires I can splice into. Of course the connector, being a standard at that time usually is not to ever be used again with anything newer.
