Hello,
I've been trying to use search so as not to post questions that have probably been asked 50 times and people are bored of answering. Like: economical ways of crimping British bullet connectors ? But if I go lowest common denominator/ keyword "bullet" 2000 results that none seem to have anything like bullet connectors. I tried both as well as crimp and crimp tool. Still 2000 hits. I believe it's when the word shows up in the thread but in most cases it's not the subject. Normally I'm pretty good in the internet search dept. Is there something I'm missing?

I bought my bullet crimp tool from British wiring. com, select components, tools. not cheap but you need the right tool to do the job right.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before

That was an example, but at the same time yes. Recently was put on to them for the right colored wire. I had some supposed crimp bullets but they just cracked with normal wire crimpers. I saw they were pricey. Thus the economical part. Now I have to balance the projected number of uses vs cost. I have made many harnesses over the years for cars trucks etc with modern connectors that have survived hardcore use (plow rigs) and I have to say I'm not a fan of the old bullets. But soldering is slow and painful. That's it in a nutshell

Hi DAMadd, I typically choose to use Google to search the site as opposed to the site’s search engine. As a test, enter the following in a Google search :

Since last updated I have been using the in quotes method to some good effect but I have to say the Google method does work well. Consequently I just spent an hour reading a thread from 2015 about the primary chain on hillbillybiker's race bike. Down the rabbit hole I go!

DAMadd,

Glad it’s working for you. Fact is many site search engines are based on or “Powered By” Google. I like the fact I can search most any site without having to understand and navigate a variety of search engine implementations and “advanced” features. I do like the ability on BritBike to search by poster. I have not found a good way to do this with generic Google.
