This article initially appeared in PS 549 (Aug 98), p.58.
Electrical terminal kit, NSN 5940-00-525-0907, gets you 500 terminals (20 different types and sizes), a crimping tool, NSN 5120-00-278-2423, and a storage box.
Don’t order a whole new kit when you’re running low on some of the terminals, though. Instead, use the NSNs listed in the downloadable PDF table below:

Editor’s note: In the original table, Spade terminal, NSN 5940-00-727-5351 was missing the last digit.
