System 1 Repinning

Post by JohnH »

Has anyone come up with an alternative for the way too fragile (and way too expensive) Molex pin extraction tool?

I picked up a set of cheap jeweler's screwdrivers and filed it down so it was narrow enough to fit into the molex housing.

What Eric said or your local auto parts store should have these. The 56500 might work and is about $15, and the other ones are about $20
Not sure how to flip the picture!

I like using the dental pick sets that hardware stores sell. Many of them are angled, so it makes extraction super easy because you can use leverage from the angle to get a form push out.

Yup. I have the cheap thin sheet metal removal tool with a plunger tip on the end, but @#$@#$ I bent the tip already of the tool....just isn't strong/thick enough. I have a pic set for the ones that don't require the full push in. I'll need to get a jeweler set to sand down.
