47'Plymouth gets first dibs if one's available, but if a second one turns up, I'm interested in finding one also.

You probably don't want one........

If you are having trouble soldering the wire to the pin, its because the wire and/or the pin are badly oxidized. Crimping it will ruin chances of removing the socket, and it will most likely fail again as the oxidation over 50 years remains mostly on the wire. Not to mention if some of the glue got down in there too. You are much better off de-soldering it, using a small drill bit by hand to scrape the pin, and wire, load it with solder flux, and try soldering it until you succeed in making a good solder joint.

If you really think the crimper is the solution, just ask people who have repaired wires on their car with the little crimp connectors, they all oxidize and have to be redone.

I found one on eBay recently and started a thread about it: http://www.videokarma.org/showthread.php?t=258473



I didn't expect it to spark so much interest. I bet there are lots floating around in toolboxes but no one knows what they are
