This is plain weird!

Add it to the list of things I don't understand.
I love these things. Insulation Displacement Connectors. Suitcase connectors to some.
They make connecting track wiring to the DCC bus a breeze.
What's got me confused is that they are significantly cheaper at Micro-Mark, than they are at industrial outlets and wholesalers, like Digi-Key or MSC.
I would have expected the exact opposite.
Either way I'll be ordering plenty soon enough.

Try this link for the connectors. A lot cheaper here: http://www.amazon.com/Scotchlok-Electrical-IDC-Wire-Splice/dp/B003KQK6TQ
