Good Quality Crimps And Crimping Basics10:54 AM
Above and beyond the crimp tube itself, the most common errors that I see when using the regular crimping pliers are easy fixes. First, do not use a lot of force with the regular crimping pliers. As I said above, the crimps are pretty soft. It doesn't take much force to compress a crimp tube. Second, after you fold the crimp tube with the "rounder," go around the crimp several more times with the "rounder" gently compressing. This will allow you to mold it into the perfect shape and make sure that the crimp is snugly attached onto the wire.
