    I am working on my wiring and I guess I need these crimpers ,so I was wondering if someone already wired their car and are done with their crimpers and wanted to sell them so they are not stuck with expensive parts they don't need. Let me know please

    What kind of crimper is that?
    Crimpers are nice but a pair of pliers works as well.
    Really all you are doing is smashing a very mild aluminum barrel and pretty plastic covering.
    I have smashed with hammer and covered with heat shrink.
    Just saying "the right tool" is not the only to get it done and still look nice.

    Look on EBay, those tool are probably made in China and you can buy direct for way less.

    I have the AAW crimpers. I gave in when I was building my 70 firebird with the update series wire kit.. there were 2 needed. No offense to your comment. But I went that way when I used a AAW update kit in my 70 firebird. Tried some of the other crimper tools out there. I wasted a lot of money on them. None of them did the job that the tools they have does. They're double crimp and single crimp tools is the way to go. I have them and might be willing to loan them to use or sell. Let's see what anyone else has to offer before I confirm my decision.

    Used mine over and over without issue. I rewired my entire LS harness using Ebay China crimpers. I guess its hit or miss. No way would I spend $160 on crimpers lol
