I'm a sucker for tools- I buy them just for the sake of having them. Most are really not worth having. BUT, one new tool I bought this year is really GREAT and deserves the attention of this forum. Its a ratcheting wire crimping tool- available about $18.00 at Autozone and the like. his make a wide perfect crimp-much less hand effort- and they never fail. It will make you want to re-crimp everything you have ever done.
