another idea is look up an electrical contractor close to you and take the stuff to their office. show em what you want most companies will have them and will let you do them right there. might cost ya 5 or 10 bucks to who ever works in the office. or take a trip to an electric supply house they might let you use a set if they have them on hand.
i also woulds be very surprised if bacons does not have a set
If you have a vice, there is a very good way to make yourself a good crimper with practically no cost. Take a nut, smaller than the lug, and split it in half. Then just stick the cable in the lug, put the nut around the lug and stick that puppy in a vise and crank her down. On small stuff, you can do the exact same thing and use a pair of vice grips in place of the vice. Some of us are pretty cheeeeep and look for other ways than having to have it done, or buying some expensive tools, that will more than likely get unsed only once or twice before being borrowed, lost or rusted up.
