Why To Use a Qualtity Tool

This should illustrate why not to use cheap crimp tools. The bottom tool is the CMI controlled cycle heat shrink crimp tool and the top one is a standard $12.00 cut, strip & crimp tool which certainly does none of it's intended uses well at all.

The thicker well machined jaws of the CMI heat shrink crimp tool will yield a significantly thicker crimp band and lead to a better cold formed crimp.
