    Have you seen, get got gotton wire

    Ah,...forgot to finish the heading, and evidently can Chang it.

    This company has a ad on Facebook, have any of you tried these wire crimpers ?
    I feel the need to buy a new one.

    Nomad nekkid?

    Yes, and you better hope he never sends you a picture. It's not a pretty site I tell you.

    Talking pictures, your profile is my cousin Vern. I'm pretty much a silver back now too.

    Kevin,

    What was your heading? I can fix it for you if I know what you want there.

    I've been using these for about 40 years and they work better than any of the dozen or so other brands I've tried.

    This is the only type of wire stripper I have used for years.

    They aren't made to strip wire, just crimping stak-on connectors and cutting wire. They crimp connectors from about #18 through #10. For larger connectors I use a Panduit crimping tool that has interchangable dies. Does a great job on connectors from #8 through #2, but it's a pretty pricey tool. For stripping I have several different tools including the type like Silver posted. Seems like I always go for my most basic tool when stripping wire.

    I still use the crimpers that I got from the Labs over 40 years ago and they work as well as any of the newer ones I have seen out here.

    I'm looking for a all-in-one. Not a larger one, something that has a small footprint to work under a dash, stereo wires, household 110 wires, projects etc.

    Then the one that I had would be perfect. It was designed to work on the back plane of the main frame computers and I used it a lot under the dash of my first Cobra. Unfortunately I let it go with the Cobra and they no longer make them any more.

    Personally I have found "one tool does all" type tools may do it all, but they are compromises and don't do anything well. I would rather have two or three tools that are specific for the job and do it right.

    But that's me.
