Also, ratcheting crimpers tend to give a much more consistent crimp, since the jaws won't release until the crimp reaches a set point.

Unfortunately, that crimper you use is NOT designed and is NOT intended for use on insulated terminals such as those made by Ancor. That tool is for NON-INSULATED terminals... Just a heads up...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

halekai,
I'm curious then as to why Klein stamps on the side of the jaw, "ins" and "un-ins" adjacent to the two crimping jaws. One of the jaws makes a crimp while the other makes more of a swage. I prefer uninsulated terminals, where possible, adding shrink tubing after the crimp.

edit for more info:
I've found that anyone with decent hand strength can achieve the same results with out the need for ratcheting. Ratcheting cutting tools generally shine where larger diameters are being cutt or crimped. I'm not against them for the discussed usage, I've just never been less than completely satisfied with the Klein pliers.

Ancor brand terminals and crimps are carried in the Home Depots in the metro NYC area, in the "eletrical" supplies sections somewhere near the tools (locked up) and switches and tape. Although HD charges some of the highest prices I've seen for electrical tools and meters, and often doesn't have great quality. (Very disappointing.)

OK guys, now let's stop screwing around with crimping tools and start doing it the right way. First, you wrap some fine copper sheet over the two spliced wires. Then you lay about 1/16" of C4 or Semtex around the copper cladding, press in a detonator, and wire it back to the companionway. Once you've got them all set, hook up the power and WHAM all the wires are welded, very nicely, very quickly.

Or, you can buy the explosive crimping sleeves in the "Sears Really Really Special Tool Catalog" but you'll have to go behind the doors in the back room and show ID before they'll let you have one. The ones from Sears are pretty good, there's a microbattery and microdetonator with timer all built into it, for a one-shot use with no extra wires to run. [VBG]

"great, now we're gonna get monitored by homeland security"

Only for about 3 minutes.
Then the men in black will figure out we're ass's full of crap and ignore us. As it should be.All is right with the world.

I have no idea why and was only referring to the crimpers in the link you posted and the specs on those specific crimpers: http://www.tools-plus.com/klein-1006.html

Highlights:

Klein 1006 Crimper-Cutter
  • For crimping non-insulated solderless terminals
  • Accommodates wire from No. 10 to 22 AWG
  • Specially hardened wire cutters in nose
  • Length 9-3/4"
  • Lifetime guaranteed ~ made in U.S.A.
My guess is that the ones you linked to are not the same as the ones you actually own??

halekai,
My error. I must be infected with the same virus as the sailnet store. (g) Yes, mine do have a jaw for both insulated and un-insulated and those are the red handled ones found at the Home Marina and electrical supply houses.
