Yep, to me a single hand tool that costs $40 or so (that's what I paid for mine at Home Depot) is pretty expensive. I probably can't justify buying a $100 or more crimper, though that would be nice in principle. It is all about cost vs. benefit - the results I get are pretty good (I will post cut-off photos so we can compare ), and I still have money left for other things. With no budget limitations I probably would have gone with your tool (though then I would need a separate tool to use for large size lugs)
