    My pink wheel was obtained from Molemab Abrasives when they had a warehouse in Mountain View, CA.

    I use a pink colored wheel (forgot grit #). And it is soft as wheels go.
    In my sharpening softer wheels make things come out better.

    The expert exterminators will bury that in the ground in some chamber and flood with lethal gas.

    If I attained a level of expert, it only took a few days of study and getting the right parts.
    Now the crimps are coming out good.

    The sturdiness of the crimp tool is one of the points. "Points" means a plural. The dies and crimp height are some points too.
    The days of "mash down and solder" are over.

    I already did that. Compared a $350 Belden to my import for $20. An exact copy. Those electrical contractors get price
    cuts on that $350 but not walk-ins for just one purchase. This is close to mine...

    Looking around at die prices I discovered why they are called dies.... when you look at the prices you want to die.

    It's actually FCI/Amphenol.

    I looked at a Belden hand crimp tool for $350 for spade connectors. Then I bought one made in Taiwan for $19.95 in a surplus store. Looks exactly the same
    and I bought...

    I bought the crimp tool fron HSC Electronics for something like $45 or $65 a few years ago. And I have done a number of crimps.
    I didn't realize that the terminals I'm using are $0.45 each. So...
  13. Does price reflect the effort to make anvil/crimp pieces for Amp hand crimper?

    The price for another similar piece that sits next to this in the link is $150. The crimp tool has two positions.
    So the underside has four anvils for 2 x $90 & 2 x $150. Then the crimp dies on the...

    They are designed to wear out shortly after the manufac. warranty expires.
