    I am looking for a good source to buy soco connectors (i mean a lot of them, not just one or two). I want a good quality connector, i can use on the distros i am making. I will post pics as i build them.

    Consider also dimmerrack.com. I cannot speak to their quality, but the prices seem reasonable. Why anyone would want to wire his own Socapex-style connectors is beyond me.

    I dont want any cheap knock off stuff. I was looking at dimmerrack.com and their prices do seem reasonable.

    Most folks have switched from the original amphanol to the links version, all are compatible.

    Unless he gets the crimp kind and a pnumatic crimper to go with them. Then those interns are made in the shade.

    I solder up the connectors. When it comes to wiring i am the only one who touches it. We had a guy say he knew what he was doing, they set him loose, and now our shop had a major short due to bad wiring, so its company policy that only I touch it. Soldering soco is much easier than solder motor distro connectors.
