Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month
I have only used it for telephone cable so far and it worked well. I haven't used any other crimpers so I have nothing to compare it to.
The wire cutter work well but if you want to cut a faulty plug of the end of a cable the plug doesn't fit through the gap. easier to use wire cutters and then square up the end with this tool.
The wire strippers have two blades that don't quite close to allow the outside layer of plastic to be removed. I am using flat rj12 cable and had mixed results using the strippers. Sometimes one blade would cut deeper than the other and the wires would be stripped bare. Would be even more difficult if you were using round cable.
NOT a major issue but if you were using this tool all day it could be a nuisance.
I am using the tool with SKU 25812 (RJ14 6P4C 4-Pin Telephone Connector)
Happy with the purchase. Works well and cheaper than many others I have seen.
