Some other connectors
« on: June 06, 2012, 11:30:18 AM »
Have also used the following with success:

When working on connecting your radios, etc. with wires and a shielding braid, look at "Solder Sleeves".  These are used to attached a ground wire to the shielding braid of a shielded cable.

Solder sleeves can also be used to connect wire to wire.

Basically a clear plastic "butt connector"  with three rings in a clear tubing.  Put the wires (or the shielding braid) in and apply heat.  Center ring is solder, melting and making a soldered joint.  Colored ring on each end seals.  Tube shrinks for a great connection.

Google Solder Sleeves.  Cleevet Technology Incorporated (Google) carries a great collection and even as kits with assorted connectors.
