I had to do a double wire crimp the other day myself. ESC now has a lead connected into fan/program port to send telemetry to Spirit. But I also wanted to still connect the fan there. The telemetry cable only uses signal and ground. So the positive pin was open, but had to double crimp on the ground. Just added a female servo plug.

It worked out well. One wire was from Spektrum sat cable, other was thin servo wire (I'd guess 28AWG). Was a snug fit into the connectors housing, couldn't go much bigger.

Even though it's not as perfect as the official tool I think the Hansen Hobbies deluxe crimper is one of my best purchases in this hobby. So nice to be able to make perfect length extensions, or funky cables like this one that you can't even buy.
