"I borrowed these from an electrician friend to crimp up some tails on 1.5mm T&E with insulated reds. Once I got the hang of this they worked a treat.
What I found worked best for me was crimping one side of the barrel at a time. This works well with these because the jaws make one-side-crimping easy. Once I adopted that approach the crimps were solid and all passed the pull test.
Now I have the crimps I'm off to get myself a set of these pliers for my tool bag. Have to pre-order because the branches don't hold stock. But at this price you can't really go wrong."

"It may seem daft, but if you have never used one of these, a guide sheet giving tips on it's use would be really useful. It's probably made it China, but giving an idea on correct usage would be good!"
