anyone have a source to buy bulk quanitities of crimp on connectors and butt connectors? You know, non-individually wrapped?

I bought a bulk kit once upon and time, and need to refill.

thanks in advance

JB Saunders in Boulder is my only hit this morning for bulk. I've never seen a website on them. McMaster-Carr has butts and such only in 10 pks, iirc.

Home Depot carries 100 packs of various crimp connectors. Might look at Grainger, too.

If you want the weather proof ones that are used on modern cars, check these out from Summit. They also have a lot of other types as well.

I've had good luck and pricing with Parts Express for bulk electrical stuff (wire, heat shrink, sleeving, connectors)

And Digikey has a boatload of stuff if you know very specifically what you need, or need something specialized:

How could I forget DigiKey? I made the mistake when placing an order of saying yes to receive their catalog in the mail. It's bigger than the Metro Yellow Pages. It's like they say, "Here, you throw this away for us..."

Heh. I remember when Digikey's printed catalog was about 20 pages. But like printed Toyota Trails, sometimes it's more convenient than online.

I went to buy some weatherpack connectors from Waytek the week before last, and their shopping cart was super-lame. Waytek's got great stuff but it wouldn't let me put more than one item in. :confused:

Buying stuff from digikey online is still super-easy.

I'll second the Parts Express. I've also purchased from another place on-line...I think it was called WiringProducts.com?

These match the old vintage Japanese motorcycle connectors and are really close to FJ40 as well. They have kits, refills, high quality crimp tools, etc. :thumb:

great for restorations, but inferior to newer weatherpack/duetsch style connectors.

I'll 3rd Parts Express, although I haven't bought from them in several years, I have bought a lot of stuff and always had a great experience.

Does anyone know of a source locally for Weatherpack connectors? I just need a single, 1 pin female connector, but I don't really want to spend $10 to ship $2 worth of connectors.

Preferably north side....

Found these. I know you are looking local, but figured this would be a good place to post em.

I've also used E&G and been very happy with them. It's not a box store setup, you walk in and ask for what you need at the counter. Someone goes to the back and brings it to you.

I asked for Weatherpack connectors when I was buying stuff to relocate my CB in my 60 prior to Moab, and NAPA said they could order them in but did not stock them. Kinda the same as just ordering online as far as I was concerned.

E&G is good and local.

I picked up the kit of Weather-tite connectors from Summit a while ago. I don't use a whole lot of them, but I periodically restock it.

Besides Parts Express there is Waytek and Delcity. I've also used Wiring Products, which is smaller.
