So I finally had time to pick up my MMJ crimper....

It came in last week, I ordered it from Kendall electric. It's an Ideal
Industries Crimpmaster. I was a little disappointed to find that it was
made in Taiwan. Oh well, at least they are allies.

I bought the connectors to go along with it too. I got home, promptly
cut off the filed down standard RJ11 connector off of one end of my
cable. THEN, I tried putting a new connector into the crimper.... I
couldn't figure out how the dumb thing was supposed to work! I was
thinking GREAT, I just dumped 70 bucks into a specialized tool I can't
seem to use. I checked part numbers several times. Turns out the MMJ
die set was in wrong.... they misassembled it at the factory. It worked
fine once I straightened it out :-) Now I have a proper cable :-)
Maybe sometime soon I can start messing around with the Vax again....
still need to break into VMS.
