    Anybody know of a reasonably priced crimp tool for Molex 50079-8000 or
    50079-8100 crimp terminals? The Molex tool is 63811-0300 but it sells for
    around $200.00 so I'm really looking for an Asian "knockoff".

    I've used crimpers that came with a terminal assortment at the auto parts
    store, for about ten bucks. Just get one with small enough jaws.

    Or, if you're doing large quantities, you could call a Molex rep and
    ask if he'd like to come out and make a pitch, and he might _give_
    you one. (I had an AMP guy give me about a $250.00 crimper once.)

    Good Luck!

    Possibly this:

    If the wrapping destroys the link, search Jameco for p/n 99442. I've
    seen these (or their clones) in many places, including the local
    electronics shops, so you're not stuck with Jameco.

    Thanks but I already have that tool along with their p/n 159265 which
    is similar. Also have Molex's Universal crimping tool which does the
    best job so far but isn't exactly what I need. These terminals are
    very tiny, here's a data sheet;

    US Digital uses the connector on their $20.00 encoders and I'm trying
    to beat the $7.00 cable cost.
