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.
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.
To use the coil crimping pliers, hold them so that the red dot on the top of the pliers faces away from your palm. Hold the bound document so that the coil that needs to be crimped is at the top. Insert the pliers so that the lower jaw is below the coil rung that you want to crimp and the top jaw is positioned above it. Squeeze the handles to cut the coil and continue to apply pressure until the pliers are completely closed in order to crimp it. Repeat the process on the other end of the coil to finish the bind.
Pros Kit offers three styles of crimper frames for their die sets, but my preference is the Pros Kit Crimp Pro Crimping Frame. It offers ratcheting action for accurate and easy crimps, allows you to use the interchangeable die sets, has a crimping pressure adjustment as well as a quick release for the safety of your hands.
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.
