Engineer Inc. PA-20 Crimper
Crimped connections are the best and most reliable way to terminate stranded wire. While there are many great options for crimping standardized connectors such as those used in the telecom or automotive industries, or the ubiquitous insulated ring terminals, the small-size connectors used in electronics often require a manufacturer-specific tool costing $1000 or more. When you only need to make a few connections and purchasing pre-crimped wires is inconvenient or impossible, a high quality generic crimp tool is essential. These are the best and most versatile ones we have found.
