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.
From fiber optic connectors to BNC connectors, the Pros Kit line of crimping die sets offers you a lifetime limited replacement warranty, and the quality you would expect without having to pay the high price that comes with these types of electronics tools. Do they hold up like other Electronics Tools? You bet, you can ask any of my field or bench technicians who put their tools through abuse and punishment every day.
Some high-end binding machines come equipped with electric coil crimpers, but the manual coil crimping pliers are adequate for most small-to-medium volume coil binding projects. For those who already own a coil binding machine that does not have an electric crimper but want to add that feature without investing in a new full-function binding machine, stand-alone crimping units are also available.
I don't know about you, but after 25 years of cable installations, it certainly seemed as if my tool bag was filled with more styles of crimping tools than any other type of electronics tool. There are just so many different types of crimp connectors to deal with, that one crimper just didn't fit all of my installation needs.
Modular plugs, "F" connectors, "N" connectors, RG58, RG59, RG6, Insulated Terminals, Uninsulated Terminals are just a few of the connector types I run into almost every day in my electronics shop, and every time I thought I had it covered, another new style of connector came along forcing me to purchase another crimping tool.
