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.
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.
RJ45, "F" connectors, "N" connectors, BNC, TNC, all have one thing in common, they all require special crimping tools to install them.
Modular crimper and cutters are great for projects that involve using multiple sizes of connections. If you wanted the flexibility to crimp multiple types of connections like telephone and data, these are the perfect for the job!
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.
