If you are thinking of getting into the industry of crimping, the first thing you should do is acquire the right tool.
The tool you should get is something that is similar to a pair of tongs or a pair of shears. Crimp tools are available in two forms a hammer crimper and a hand crimper. The hand crimping tools are easier to use as they have an ergonomic handle and the crimp head is placed in between the handles. They have a bar handle on which the crimp head fits perfectly.
