i use one of these, 40 bucks at builders warehouse...use the middle section with the holes, depending on the size of your crimp sleeves, choose the right diameter hole....this is however not heavy duty, but for making traces it's more then ideal.

Hiya

Don't mess around with cheap crimping tools and stay FAR away from blunt cutters or pliers.

There is ONLY one way, the RIGHT way to crimp. Crimps need to be matched to the line diameter. In other words, use 2.0mm crimps for 2.0mm line. Using 2.5mm crimps for 2.0mm line is asking for trouble.

Crimpers are designed for a certain size of crimps. Use the RIGHT crimper, because its DESIGNED to crimp a specific crimp to a specific size. (the green one below is considered to be the best value for money, but is still expensive, at R200-300!!)

If you use a bluny pliers, you don't know how much pressure you can apply to a crimp. Too much pressure and you will damage the line under the crimp. Too little pressure and the line will slip out under tension.

With the right tools, crimping is very simple.

This is how i crimp my 2.0mm mono line on my spearguns. The same principle, when using stainless steel cable/wire:
