Most people who like do it yourself (diy) projects often run into situations where they need to run wire. This job can quickly become very difficult or cumbersome without the proper tools such as a wire crimper or a pair of wire strippers, and more importantly, the correct type of crimper for the job. Crimpers come in many different varieties and sizes and the right tool for the job often depends on the type of wire that needs crimped and/or stripped. For example, if you were to attempt to use a RJ-45 data wire crimper to crimp the end of a coaxial cable, you would likely bend the teeth of the RJ-45 crimper. Some people also believe it is perfectly fine to use the stripping blade on any set wire crimpers for any type of wire, regardless of how heavy the gauge. A heavier gauge wire always needs a heavier gauge to get the job done right! Although the crimper may not be visibly damaged the first time it is used to cut a heavier than intended gauge wire, in most cases it will weaken the blade, which will cause it to crack and chip over time.
You would think that after all these years of using my hands on a daily basis that my hands and fingers would remain limber. Yet, just the opposite is true, I find my hands becoming cramped when involved in applications that require repetitive crimps. That's why my choice is the Crimp Pro Crimper Frame from Pros Kit. This ratcheting style crimper frame is much easier on my hands, especially when working with the large installs.
There are basic questions to start off asking before selecting a pair of wire crimpers for a project. Firstly, and most importantly, the type of wire or cable to be crimped will largely dictate what style of crimpers to select. Secondly, the thickness, or gauge, of the wire will determine if a heavy duty pair is needed or a light-weight pair will do the job. When selecting a heavy duty pair of wire crimpers, it is critical to make sure that both the crimping mechanism and the blade for cutting the wire are of high quality to prevent them from chipping. Some tools offer a mechanism for easily changing out parts as they get chip or get dull, which is important to look for because it is always nice when they last for more than one job.
The ratchet wire crimper uses a mechanism that crimps stranding and the insulation grip portion of connectors all in one motion for superior strain relief of the hand. These provide an easy means to crimp wires with ease and are also very versatile as many have multiple cavities for crimping wires of various sizes. Crimpers that come with strippers make the experience of wire crimping much more seamless and convenient by incorporating both into a single tool.
Pros Kit Electronics Tools have finally come up with the solution to the problem for cable installers like you and me . They offer a full line of interchangeable crimping dies sets that will cover almost every type of connector you and I could imagine. In fact there are over 30 styles of crimping dies to choose from. What I find most appealing about these crimping dies sets is that they will fit into one of three styles of Pros Kit crimper frames. These crimper frames will accommodate all the different styles of crimper dies they have to offer, and in many cases their competitors dies sets as well. The days of having to purchase multiple crimping tools is over.
