Its a bad, dark picture, and I haven't shrunk the last of the shrink tubing yet... but unfortunately the only pic I took - I'll try to snap some more (and closer) pics later.
In the process of doing a ton of DB25s (on Mogami). I'm soldering them, no crimping. ::knock on wood::
The soldering has been going really well and very quickly; no bent pins, no problems with continuity, no "leaks" between any adjacent leads, strain relief is fitting nicely, I'm not forgetting to slide shrink tubing on the cable before I start soldering
hah.... that always stinks...
For the record - I have been ordering from Redco (whom I am very happy with). I am saving hundreds of dollars by buying bulk cable and connectors and soldering myself, rather than buying double length and cutting in half. Let's say I need two 25 foot, 24-channel Mogami snakes with 3 DSUBs on one side of each (blunt on the other). I'd have to buy a 50 foot snake with DB25's on either end - that's $670. To buy 50 foot of 24 channel snake by itself, its $375, and the DSUBs are a few bucks a piece.
