2021 Mailbag

Here another Mailbag post.

I received more items in my mailbag and this are items i received in Q2 of 2021. During that time i already started writing this blog article, however due to other priorities i did not post it yet. So in fact the text is already a bit outdated when posting this mid October 2021 but perhaps still interesting.     
Some of the items i ordered during the last months are for my some longer term plans for a new shed / workspace. So it can take a while before i am going to use them. As i only place orders in China below 22 euro's (due to tax regulations) i decided to order items step by step.


These wire connectors i never used before.
It is used to add a connection to an existing wire e.g. for an additional socket.
This is also something i never used before and when is did see a video using it it looked interesting so i want to try it.
It is a set of tubes like shrinking tube with in the middle some solder. It is used to connect two wires. You put the wires in from both sides. Heath the tube and the solder should flow to connect the wires and also the tube shrinks. This way you can easy connect two wires. 
This are some 12V car sockets. In my new workspace (that currently only exist as a plan) i want to add some of this connectors with 12V to power projects or do experiments.
The nice thing is there is a cap in front of the connector to close the big opening.
