When the crimping pliers first showed up in your store, I thought “hay great, I could use that, but I didn’t realize they were so expensive”. I’m sure many go through this same thought wave.
Then I got to thinking. Looking at my various electronics projects, and the number of connectors I use, and typically pay a pretty price for pre-assembled, these things are actually quite a bargain.
I don’t mind paying for great tools that make otherwise very hard tasks very simple. I’ve received the pliers, and am already putting them to use. It’s good tools like this that make my electronics dreams that much easier to achieve.
I am happy that you guys continue to look out for and stock all the ‘little things’ that make a maker’s life easier. This is what keeps me coming back to you again and again.
