Me too and, by the time you get the lug hot enough, the solder wicks all the way to China up the wire. Makes for an unmanagable 2 or 3 inches of wire with zero bend qualities... This crimper has it done in a few seconds and leaves the cable flexible right up to the lug... I like it and it IS money well spent!
