Anyone Use Tool Aid Crimper?

I am thinking about buying a S&G Tool Aid Ratcheting Terminal Crimper. Has anyone used one? Comments?

I have never heard of that brand,but a ratcheting crimper is a good way to take the guess work out of crimping. I had my own electric supply company for over 12 years,Like a Snapon truck but wire and crimps and related items. I am in no way connected to this company but they have some good tools and reasonable prices. Try www.waytekwire.com or [url]www.delcitywire.com. They both have a large selection of stuff to wire your car with.Hope this helps.

Our electricians at work use them all the time to crimp connections, they work fantastic. For really big connections to 250MCM and 500MCM wire they use a hand operated hydraulic crimper made by T&B.

I have the #18920, RATCHETING TERMINAL CRIMPING KIT. Works good, I really only use it for spark plug wires, and weather-pak connectors though.

The rachet crimpers are great. They do have to be adjusted to the terminals you are using though.
