Here’s a handy DIY Crimp Tool Holder brings more mechanical advantage to your inexpensive off-the-shelf handheld crimp tool — great for short production runs and interactive artwork installs that begin to get a little bit wire happy. Or if you were to break the arms off your crimpers! Via Oomlout:
We were getting frustrated with slow crimping. While not doing enough volume to warrant an automatic machine we augmented our hand crimps to make the job a little bit easier.
Simply grab a cheap pair of of the shelf hand crimps (we used these) cut the bits out and bolt together. You’ll be effortlessly crimping in no time.
