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.
The main problem that commonly occurs when people begin buying their own tools, such as wire crimpers, is that those types tools comes in a variety of sizes for different jobs. The same issue happens when you buy a set of metric measurement ratchets or wrenches, but the task requires a set of standard measurement tools. This is made worse when looking at wire crimpers because they not only come in different sizes, but there are also a variety of types that can help or hinder a project. The most basic wire crimpers are used for simply cutting and stripping wires. There are also more specialized types of crimpers which are used for different applications, such as crimping together different sizes and types of data or cable couplers. Data and coaxial cables typically become vastly more complex since they often contain several layers of wires, some of which need to be stripped back, and others that need to be crimped. For this reason, is is very important to know what to look for when selecting the right pair of wire crimpers.
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.
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.
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.
