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.
The one important thing to remember, as is true with most things in life, is that you will get what you pay for. When searching for the best pair of wire crimpers, every project is different, however typically higher cost means higher quality. Lastly, when a pair of crimpers will be needed for serveral years of use, it is usually a good idea to check if it can crimp and cut different varieties of wires. The most common types of multi-crimp tools are used to support a variety of RJ-style connectors and different types of data cables. Lastly, when a pair of crimpers will be needed for the long haul over several years of use, it is also a good idea to see if it can cut and crimper different types of wires.
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.
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.
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.
