It has both a male and a female side.

Since it has only two sides there is no side left for a female side with different diameter  Grin

Great tip, I bought one right away

me too!  Smiley

Me too  Cheesy

Getting these pins out is a pain if you have to use a screwdriver or something like that..... Cutting the wire won't do the trick, the old pin will still be stuck in de housing... So far I could only find really expensive onces.... Great tip André.... I finished digging by the way Smiley

They must be mistaken. What good would a "male" side do (in this case ...) ??

It just works for male and female the same way after all the "back" part of the male and female terminals are the same and that is what this tool works on.

P.S. not sure if €5,50 is worth a lot of your time Wink But I can see the challenge, I've heard people made their own. But you got the skills and tools Smiley

So, I expect it to have two female sides, one 0.093" the other 0.062" but those work for both male and female pins....

i bought the exact same extractor tool about three years ago - it broke after the fifth pin!!! like with a lot of other stuff, i'm (mostly) done buying cheap stuff, i invested a lot more money in really good extractor tools and they work perfectly. good luck to you guys, hope the tool holds ...

You make me curious how it can break, the only way i guess it only can break by excessive bending/handling.

the only thing you do with this "pipe" is releasing the locking by sliding it over the pin which in turn presses the lockingclip.

after that you can pull the pin out from the connector on the wire side and it should slide out of the tool while you do that..

Luigi, i know you are a great engineer, maybe you can make this version :

That seringe system look to do the job perfectly !

Nice cheap test monitor for B/W games or an ideaal candidate for another Etienne McGyver project:

http://www.baco-army-goods.nl/restantpartijen/monitor-composiet-video-ingang.html

Looks like it is one of those old videophone (CRT) monitors so don't expect the best of picture quality....

Found this company while looking for 2"/50mm. capacitor clamps for Atari Big Blue's. Although plastic these might work, at least they are cheap and for like a workbench power brick where originality doesn't matter it should be fine....... shipping within Holland pretty expensive though....
