    the PAD-01 is on my "to buy" list, I also want the Sargent Master Crimp set: https://racespeconline.com/collectio...ls/Crimp-Tools

    I've got the .64 Sargent tool which is awesome for some of the smaller 030/070 and sumitomo terminals, also handy for the weather seals that require a round crimp which the standard PAD stuff isn't great at.

      PAD01 set is about $170AUD from Hobbyking which may or may not be a good price?

        Hobby King were mucking me around, so i went and got the PAD 01 from a local supplier today. Paid a few more dollars, about the same as the HK shipping.


        Bloody nice piece of kit.

        I already have bootlace crimpers for the solid Deutsch pins, so no worries there.

          I think these are a pretty good buy. Molex brand, so you'd assume decent quality.

          I have PA-09 and PAD-13 Engineer stuff. They are really well made. The tension adjustment on the PAD-13 is a source of constant frustration.

          I'm looking for something that does big open barrel stuff really well. Around 6-8mm terminals. I'm yet to find anything.

            The molex ones are good, but limited in crimp sizes and for the money the PAD01 is a better option for me. That said the PAD13 shouldn't have tension adjustment, its the same body as the PAD01 just with the No. 13 die alone.

              poor description. The pivot has a locking nut that needs constant attention.

                Ah, yeah. I remember that from the older Engineer crimpers i had. I think i swapped it for a nyloc or conelok nut.

                  I bought one of these fuckers to do large gauge wiring lugs cheap as chips off ebay, works awesome and you get to use a hammer to make something.

                    I got one of these for like $20:

                      This turned up a couple of days ago.



                      I've had a pair of their PA-09 for smaller terminals for a while, man I wish I'd bought this PA-21 ages ago.



                      Only complaint is the jaw is very narrow, you can see it's taken two crimps on this Yazaki terminal to complete it.

                      Otherwise I'm pleased with them.

                        The PA21 is a nice bit of kit. I quite like having the narrow jaws too, as it means that it works well for narrow connectors, like the Molex microfit stuff. But yeah, not so much auto stuff.
