Can someone tell me where I can find a .156" wire harness for this
thing....

I have looked through digikey and mouser but I can't find one. I can see
the parts to make your own, but I don't have the crimper tool I need to do
that.

Look around for Molex, something like pin socket connector housings or
some such. I've used those connectors before, but I don't know where
you'd get them nowadays.

Maybe Digi-key catalog page 95, figure 7. (guess it helps when you know
what you're looking for).
http://dkc1.digikey.com/US/PDF/T051/CatalogPages.html - click '95'. ;-)

Good Luck!

I have looked through digikey and mouser but I can't find one. I can see the parts to make your own, but I don't have the crimper
tool I need to do that.

The following procedure is one I use without qualm on small
numbers of connections for one-up constructions. To do
more, you would procure a crimper.

Use needle-node pliers to fold the wire-grasping ears on the
terminal onto the stripped wire end. Bend the wire so that
the insulation is not touching the rest of the terminal. Solder
the pseudo-crimped portion quickly, taking care to not get
solder on the mating contact portions of the terminal. Fold
the insulation grasping ears over to form the strain relief as
intended by the terminal design (and permit the terminal to
be inserted into the connector shell).

It goes pretty fast once you get the hang of it and is as good
a connection as a crimp if you are careful.

Hi, Chris. From your picture, it looks like you need a 6-pin Molex
connector.

Since you're doing the surplus boogie, try All Electronics:

http://www.allelectronics.com/

They have a CAT# CON-236 pre-made 6-PIN CONNECTOR W/HEADER, .156",
which already has an 11" long 18AWG wiring harness attached. Simple,
easy, and available for the miracle low price of $2.25 USD ea. http://www.allelectronics.com/cgi-bin/category.cgi?category=189&item=CON-236&type=store Good luck Chris C #### Chris W Jan 1, 1970 0 Chris said: Hi, Chris.

It looks like allelectronics have a few power supplies that would do
what I need too, but they have 9 pins on the connector I see in the
photo. Will say a 3 and 6 pin Molex connector fit next to each other on
this thing

Hi, Chris. You might have to shave both connectors on the ends a
little with a hobby knife, but it should work.

I like Power One switching supplies myself. \$6.50 looks like a good
deal. Make sure not to exceed 43 watts unless you've got a fan on it
(that's what the 300 LFM means).

Good luck
Chris
