    I have 5 target switches where someone cut off the housing clips and soldered the wires directly onto the pins. A couple of the switches are bad an I need to replace them. So I want to do this correctly. I believe I need .100 housings and would prefer to use Trifurcon terminals. First, is this the right way to go? Secondly, where do I get the terminals and plastic housings? I see .156 a lot of places but not .100. Pardon me in advance if I didn't use the correct terminology.

    trifurcon pins are only available in .156 sizes, not .100

    Target switches should be soldered in, at least with most manufacturers and titles.

    OK well that limits my options. The machine is a Sega and it came with IDC housings. Targets are 500-6138's. I've seen on a Williams where all the targets are soldered.
