I'm so inspired that I'm going to order one right now.

Ancor Double Crimp Ratchet Tool (701030) - ManVenture Outpost, LLC.

I posted this above too...

The earlier models were actually pretty decent, the ones I tested. I suspect Ancor changed vendors, they tend to do this to cut costs, and the most recent one I tested (same model) is not the same as the older model I have. I think this makes the Pro's Kit tool a better value....

Again what ever tool you guy you will NEED to test it with the terminals you use. Once you find terminals that work well in the tool, stick with them. Yes the older Ancor was a good value. Not so sure about current inventory....
