Those aren't field assembly connectors, ie the ones with a pre-cleaved polished 
stub and gel.  Those require epoxy and polishing.  Not sure why you would use 
them.  FS also carries field connectors in the splice on and index gel version. 
 If you are doing any kind of volume, it makes a whole lot more sense to buy 
pigtails for .65 each and splice them yourself.

  Why? Because I don't want to buy a fusion splicer for one termination...

  Saw those, just curuios to know how the cheapies work, 99% they are epoxy

  You would be talking about "quick" or "field" connectors that are 5-10$ ea

anything fiber related all I will do with the company is what the boss says, 
outside of that I deal with my partner. I won't grow the fiber side period.

      No epoxy.  No polishing.  They already have a very short piece of cleaved

      I see these cheap 50 cent LC and SC connectors on, how do you 
terminate them? could someone link a video? 

      I'm assuming epoxy and polishing with a crimp?
