Another choice is the pre-SATA Molex harddrive power connector. I'm sure most of us have a box full of them from fan, floppy, sata adapters.

Not good for mounting on an enclosure and not pretty.

For those molex mini-fit jr.s. Are you able to crimp them without their crimping tool?

I have been using these crimpers for all of the pins on my ShapeOko and ORDbot:

They are for D-Sub pins but, crimp many pins nicely and they are cheap.

Shapeoko 1 # ???? Stainless plates, still in the box.
Shapeoko 2 # 3926 not stock
Shapeoko 3 # 0003
