Can someone recommend an inexpensive ( < $25) crimper for the connectors
on mouser catalog page 888?

There isn't much of a solution other than manually soldering (sparingly) and
careful crimping with pliers.

If it says AMP, it's going to cost you but it will last. Some 15 years back
I
got burned with a 30 dollar RJ-45 crimper. After having to redo all crimps
except those made to silver satin cable, I bought a $136 AMP crimper. I
fail no crimps due to the tool now, only from my allowing a wire to land in
an incorrect channel.

If you are in the U.S.: Lowes and Home Depot (home improvement stores) has
crimpers of many types (not all).
