Making Servo connectors

Making your own servo connectors

If there is one thing that I hated learning, it must be making servo connectors. Everything is small and fidgety and not very easy to assemble, i was a shear pain to begin with. Today it is one of the things i enjoy doing best. It has given me the ability to shorten or lengthen cables on my builds keeping the builds neat and tidy. It takes making quite a few cables to get it right, at times even cables that i thought were done properly, ended up being redone because of loose connections. Thats why i use a bit of solder on the wire. 28 gauge wire is relatively thin so using a dab of solder enhances the chance of a better connection. Anyway here comes a quick guide on how i make my header pin connectors and what you need to purchase to make them.

things you need
Terminal connectors female or male
28 gauge Silcone Wire
Crimping tool
Housing 1-6 slots remember to purchase the required amout of slots needed.
Wire cutters these are great use them for practically everthing, very cheap too.

Getting the stuff you need.
