The PAR-20 Ratchet Crimping Pliers are a high quality hand tool made in Japan that is great for securely crimping electronics connectors.
While not as efficient as the expensive automatic crimping machines the PAR-20 is a capable tool for medium volume applications. It is designed for efficiency and allows both the insulating sheath and the conductor to be crimped simultaneously with a single action.
The crimpers are 265mm long for extra leverage and ease of use. It comes with English instructions and crimps a wide variety of connectors with 1.6mm, 1.7mm, 1.9mm and 2.3mm wide crimping dies. RohS compliant with a Polypropylene handle for chemical resistance. It is currently on sale for $149.95.
More new tools and crimping pliers are in stock at the I Heart Engineering store.
