Anyone have a TE header tool?

Any of you have one of these for building new IDC header connectors that I can either borrow or buy off of you?

Imho you should not replace cheap idc with idc, replace them with crimped connectors for much more better reliability.
I have tons of problem with games with idc connectors (Williams vidz and pinz).
I replaced all IDC in my Robotron with crimped connectors and it work now better then ever :-)
My dream project is to remove all idc connectors from my gameroom !!

Agreed, but I still use them for pass throughs.
