Ratchet Crimping Pliers for BNC/TNC Connectors
« on: March 13, 2014, 11:41:26 AM »
The tool below is from the ones that possibly I would use 20 times in a life time, because I am not an 100% RF guy.

Even so the prices for it in a electronics hardware store is about 40 EUR.
Sudenly eBay become full of them and possibly due the low demand, it pricing it did roll down to 11 EUR shipped.

Did any one buy it? So to be able to make spesific comments about it?

At work in company, we use a crimping tool from PRESSMASTER http://www.pressmaster.se/products/#crimping
It is a high cost tool,but  anyway I think that maby it doesnt worth it, because one of this tools broken (the internal spring ) suddenly one day , without excessive pressure on it.
So I think that this one you found on ebay could be suitable for you, especially if you dont need to use it very often.

I did ordered/ buy this tool today,  final cost is €10.50 EUR after been cleared by Paypal.
When arrives I would set it under the microscope  :) , but I have a positive feeling about it all ready.

The 95% of most eBay sellers have this specific tool, and just their pricing are varying.

I use a modular crimping ratchet plier from Toolova. http://www.toolova.de/english/homeFrame-e.htm
 It's not that cheap as  your option, but I like its built quality and the abundance of different inserts. So I don't need to store more and more pliers, but just the small inserts. Compard to my old/expensive Weidmüller it doesn't feel less good.
I have inserts for micro sub-d connectors, bnc and insulated cable shoes. That's what I mostly need and it is small enough to be packed in my bag when I travel.
...well and it crimps fine without sqeezing the insulation too much.

Close up pictures and images directly from the camera.
When the forum viewer opens then, just right-click on your browser and select view image so to open the image in new window, so to see even higher detail.

The tool looks well made, but the electrostatic pain on it is rather thin.
At least it comes lubricated and in order to open it jaws you need to squiz all the way in.

This is an update about an issue that I faced,  this has to do with smallest crimping hole, this is for central pin of BNC connectors.
Recently I made two BNC high quality cables with Amphenol B1121A1-ND3G-1-50 connectors.
http://www.ittsb.eu/forum/index.php?topic=1144.msg2928;topicseen#msg2928

And I discover that this ratchet tool small hole this is 2mm wide (compressed) and also specific Amphenol BNC center pin this is 2mm.
Therefore this Ratchet Crimping Pliers it is unable to crimp specific BNC center pin.

My solution were one work around, and this was to add one small piece of hard copper cable in this gap, so this to compensate and make this hole smaller.
My work around worked, but after its crimping session I was forced to renew this addition filling (small piece of hard copper) with new one.

I did manage to crimp all my four connectors, by using patience and caution, but for productive work, I would have to characterize this tool as FAIL.
