    I just love tracing a wire cutting it repeatedly hoping to find the black interior changes to copper color before it disappears to the unreachable..

    Ive been buying from Ferrules Direct for years. I have one of their basic ferrule crimpers myself and we bought 3 more for use at work. Work fine. W have some of the really expensive ferrule crimpers at work and these are just as good, better for small wires.

    Now I need to find here in Germany all the actual connectors and ferrules I need. Do you all think it is better to buy the bare ferrules and use heat shrink after the crimp or can you actually buy the ferrules/connectors with heat shrink already on them?

    Never seen "bootlace ferrules" with heat shrink and there is probably not much benefit to use heat shrink with them.
    Terminal connectors are available with heat shrink but those are yet another can of worms... appears some of them would need slightly different crimping dies. Plus they are rare and really costly if you buy any brand make.


    TME (Poland) has pretty good selection, prices are usually very reasonable and they tell you make/model/spec

    And if you expect your "machine" to see salt spray (or manure...) you should use cable with tinned copper strands.
