    When the wire bunches up it is not called a ‘birdcage’ it is called a ‘birds NEST ! ‘ just saying.

    Just solder it. Those crimps always fail.

  7. Assertive Karma on December 4, 2021 at 10:32 am

    I’ve seen newer videos of yours, this is obviously older, but A+ quality!

    What about soldering after you crimp it on?

  19. Tim Kilinc on December 4, 2021 at 10:47 am

    Great content and very clearly presented. Thanks I have learnt a lot.

  21. Sweet Memories on December 4, 2021 at 10:48 am

    Thanks for a wonderful video. I had used a hair dryer to heat the heat shrink in the past while connecting a cable to a fuel pump and it worked. Those days I never heard of a hot air gun that is shown towards the end of this video. Well done providing useful tips.

  22. Aajaan Ron on December 4, 2021 at 10:49 am

    Thank you for doing this; a very easy-paced, clearly explained and thoroughly demonstrated tutorial. So much so that it is still accurate and complete 8 years later.👍👍

  23. Justwell Tariang on December 4, 2021 at 10:54 am

    Sir, what you have taught I think comes from years of experience. It gives me immense pleasure and a very good tutorial. Awesome.

  24. Alain Sabourin on December 4, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Very well made and explained video on an important issue I see being done wrongly by professionals …. Thank you for the video!

  25. Craig Wells on December 4, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Thanks for the much needed up-schooling. Makes me want to revisit a few marginal efforts I’ve made in the past.

  26. Tom McCurnin on December 4, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Amazing knowledge and skill set. Thank you for your time.

  27. sam peter on December 4, 2021 at 10:57 am

    i liked the detailing lesson.

    you answered all the questions might anyone think of.

  28. Anant Hardikar on December 4, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Amazing and thanks dear, can not imagine to have better explanation than this

  29. unglaubich uberlieber on December 4, 2021 at 11:02 am

    thanks for your very informative+instructive video, especially the crimp part, but to find the connectors that will fit my terminal blocks is a nightmare, again many thanks, it has been most helpful

  30. mmodnao on December 4, 2021 at 11:06 am

    1.2K dislikers stripped their fingers and crimped their toes.

  31. Mohabir Somwaru on December 4, 2021 at 11:06 am

    Very good excellent

  32. mark fornal on December 4, 2021 at 11:09 am

    to much explanation

  33. H.Sapiens technologicus on December 4, 2021 at 11:09 am

    Legend has it MJLORTON has so many meters, God came by to borrow some when he was inventing electricity

  34. Alejandro F. on December 4, 2021 at 11:13 am

    13:10 "…you have to apply a lot of mechanical force and muscle…" well, that’s debatable.
    Even pre-teen boys/girls can easily strip wires with those type of wire strippers.

  35. Terry M on December 4, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Very good video explaining how to crimp STRANDED wire HOWEVER I have been told by my electrician friends not to use crimp on devices on solid wire. Do you agree with that advice?

  36. isa_yah_boi_mj on December 4, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Awweeeee another south african!!! 🤣🔥💯

  37. D Reinsmith on December 4, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Very excellent information. Thank you. It has saved me a lot of mistakes I would have made!

  38. Godwin Williard on December 4, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Very very advanced!

  39. Dave Coetzee on December 4, 2021 at 11:16 am

    Great video, awesome attention to detail! Thanks

  40. Hector Echavarria on December 4, 2021 at 11:18 am

    I have never done any cramping before, or anything electrical related. Without this video I would’ve made some very amateur mistakes. Thank you so much for this.

  41. Aravind Raja on December 4, 2021 at 11:18 am

    thanks, good explanation

  42. Francis Brown on December 4, 2021 at 11:19 am

    On my crimper, which is a reasonabe quality Hilka one similar to the one in your video, the dies are different sizes on each face. The face with the coloured dots has a more complex shape and has a bigger gap between the jaws than the other face. The non dot side also leaves a small dot impressed into the sleeve. So which side is which?

    To further confuse things, more than one YouTube video, such as https://youtu.be/YLhpdgXzx28 states that the way up of the crimper matters as the metal sleeves have a split in it and these guys claims it matters which way up the split goes as the 2 jaws have different shapes.

    In summary my crimper allows the terminal to be inserted in 4 different orientations, so which one do I use?

  43. Anonymous Person on December 4, 2021 at 11:20 am

    Wow, I have seen others use the diy fuse holders and thought of using them. I know not to now.

  44. Manoj Sharma on December 4, 2021 at 11:20 am

    Excellent matter… Whatever you described…👌👌

  49. Frank Davidson on December 4, 2021 at 11:23 am
