I’m definitely not ignoring you. Honestly I’m so far along scrap wise, I do most things on auto pilot.
I need to actually do it and pay attention and o tell you my method

So I’ll do these. Should be a good overview. I don’t see any sata or sas ends off hand but I’ll add that if I find one.

Let’s see what we’re going to start with

I've got all those tools except the slip jaws.

So your just eliminating the plastic that is extra?

Generally, correct. I’ll tinker with a few tomorrow evening when I have some time to see if there’s any gotchas. But basically, remove the plastic carefully to the point you can wiggle the pins loose.
Slip jaws are a must for any tech or scrapper.
Depending on alignment and useology you can either apply an extreme amount of proportional pressure; allowing for safe small scale work with no damage concern. Or, you can nip an end tight anc bend and snap stuff.

Robogrip is slightly different from any other slip jaw pliers. The slight difference in slide angle makes them extremely powerful nabers. They’re great for smashing. Used with some Finesse you can gently crush the hard plastic of connectors like ATA, PS2, USB, even external ones like dvi and VGA. Then gently remove the pins from the smashed mess.
Just keep in mind I’ve literally ripped the head off a frozen half inch bolt with robogrips by accident; which is why I added standard slip jaws to my tools. Your torque increases by 200-800% depending on the size of the head.

Robogrip slip jaws make a terrible standard use tool. I got my first RG in the 90s. I’ve done much damage with them, as mentioned above. They’re my last resort before heading to the drill and saws all. But I use the 7” set to pri open stuff on a regular basis. There’s rumours of the 10” ones snapping master lock bolts used in tandem. But never seen proof in this video age. Suffice it to say they’re extremely strong and powerful.
And you can see their destructive power in my what’s inside posts where they’ve been shown to crush hard drive cases and rip open locked fire proof containers among other non-standard uses.

I prefer kobalt (Lowe’s) because it supplies work and income for veterans.
I’ve had problems with craftsman (sears) tools in general. Never any issue with husky (Home Depot) though. Quality of Craftsman went out the window in the late 90s. And I’m not sold they were all that great to begin with.
Kobalt is also tough as hell. Equal to, if not better than, snap-on.

Best to find robogrip in a store. Make sure you get one made in: USA, Canada, Malaysia, Hong Kobg or Singapore.
Pass on one from China, Taiwan, or Mexico.
They often hold both the robogrip brand AND a store brand name, eg husky or craftsman.

I did the pins in the connectors I pictured, just got to do the uploads now.

Are robogrips from those 3 countries really that much worse? I had no idea about that.
