Look at the photos posted by hondamarlboro on a different thread. He soldered to the connector sockets. The special crimp tool costs $300 USD.

You could attach smaller wires to the connector, then solder larger wires to those.

I needed VERY small wires to connect to the tiny remaining SMT resistor pads on my k4nt, so I took apart a dead CFL (compact fluorescent light bulb), and I uses some of the enamel-coated wire from the choke coil contained on the circuit board inside the light bulb. Lot's of other useful components in their too, including two diodes you could use in a level shifter circuit (but your cable does not need that).

You can get small wires from descarded electronics.
