    Hi,
    Are there any crimp connectors suitable for connecting components (diodes, resistors etc) to stranded wire?

    not specifically, that I am aware of
    what are you trying to do and why cant you just solder the wired and put heatshrink over the joint ?

    No reason I can't solder it. It's just that there seems to be crimp connectors for just about every situation so I thought I would try them out if possible.

    They are called barrel crimp connectors, sometimes seen in appliances to join the inline thermal fuse and other purposes etc.

    The crimps shown above might not offer as secure a crimp as you require given they are usually rated for 0.5mm to 1.5mm C.S.A wires.

    There are 'bootlace ferrules' that accept smaller diameter wires but you'd have to cut the 'boot' off and heatshrink the crimped joint.

    And for many of the crimping tools for these you'll need to make sure you can get the crimping tool over the component.

    Not worth the trouble. I'll just go with solder.

    No need for cutting the boot off of a bootlace ferrule.

    Just buy ferrules with no boot, such as: http://cpc.farnell.com/pro-power/sten-1008/ferrules-uninsulated-bootlace/dp/CN11650

    Very handy for all sorts of jobs, and uses same crimp tool as booted ferrules

    Not found boot-less ferrules for smaller sizes (0.25 and 0.34) though, so maybe cutting off the boot is still needed here. Admittedly I have not looked very hard.
