Both are definitely options as I cannot seem to find this cable myself (was hoping for the easy way). I did pick up a molex crimping tool but I do have some questions as I haven't had much success, instead just destroying some pins as I'm a novice.
This is the crimping tool I bought:

And the pins (.093):

I have a molex extractor tool for .062 and .093 pins:

The standard 4-pin AMP connector we all are used to in this retro hobby, can someone confirm the following?
- Are the female connector versions (with the male pins) model 8981?
- Are the male connector versions (with the female pins) model Mate-n-Lok 1-480424-0
And for the pins:
- I understand there are .062 versions and .093 - which are used most commonly in these AMP connectors?
- Is there a model # for these pins?
The problem I am running into is the question of these little metal 'sides' that are left when you cut the connectors out. What do you do with these?
For an older AT power supply, I was not able to fit the .093 pins inside of the amp connector. It seemed to get 'stuck' and I wasn't sure if it was due to the pin size or if it was the little metal pieces left over from cutting the pins from the 'chain' they were attached to.
- Will this crimping tool work for those JST PH4 (4-pin) connectors?
- Can someone point me in the right direction on the pins and connector to buy (and crimping tool if I need one different from what I have?)
