Re: Battery Cable Crimper

In my shopping I decided that were I to buy one, I would strongly consider this one for ~$60 from Harbor Freight;
Hydraulic Wire Crimping Tool

(does anybody know how to resize an image without copying the image)

The problem with this tool is that the dies are neither labelled correctly, nor are they to AWG spec. I understand that the "AWG 0" pictured above is actually closer to an AWG 6. Harbor Freight has been told about this numerous times, but continues to sell the under sized dies.
