Crimping Tool: 0.1-1.0 mm² Capacity, 16-28 AWG Great for 0.1" connectors, JST connectors etc.

$59.00 Inc. GST

This crimping tool can be used to crimp both male and female versions of our Tamiya connector crimp pins, mini Tamiya connector crimp pins, JST connector crimp pins, JR crimp pins, Futaba J crimp pins, and crimp pins for 0.1" housings onto 16-28 AWG wires to make custom cables. The tool offers ratcheting action for increased consistency and ease of use.

Using the Crimping Tool

Prepare the wire by stripping about 1/8" (3 mm) of insulation from the end. Place the wire in the crimp pin, lining it up so that the stripped portion lies between the inner set of tabs on the crimp pin, while insulated wire lies between the outer set of tabs.

Place the wire and crimp pin on the appropriate tooth of the tool’s die, making sure that the insulated end is on the raised and wider half of the tooth. The tabs should point toward the cavity on the other side of the die so that the tool bends them inward around the wire when it closes.

Close the jaws of the tool slowly and completely until they release. The tabs on a properly crimped pin should form one barrel around the wire conductors and another barrel for strain relief around the wire insulation.

  1. If you are wondering what works really well with the polarized connectors - this is it. Once you work out a good sequence for you - it does a great job. Good strain relief on the insulation and nice neat crimp on conductor, this is all in one action. I tried the non ratcheting product from a popular electronics store and it did not work well at all, infact there was no curl over on the conductor and required two separate actions to get something like a crimp that worked.
