Alright now i'm confused a little bit here! Is this a joke that you guys are pulling on us here?? I replied to one of his questions but now I see that there is a question for everything that has to do with even the commen sense stuff! Stuff that kids in 5th grade even know already!! Nobody has ever asked me a question like this in my life!! Is this for real or not?
I hope it's a joke cause if not then I will look pretty mean .:embarasse
a crimp cap/connecteo/whatever just slides over a wire, or two ends of wire that have been twisted together and, when crimped, hopefully gives them a solid connection that won't come loose.
A crimper is a tool specially designed to work with the crimp connectors so that it gets the tightest crimp possible. You can also crimp something using needlenose pliars but the connection is usually not as easy to make solidly.
