OK, but on that T10 the round bit looks oval, thats not right? can you post a close up of your T10 jaws and also of a pin that you have crimped using it?

I havent tried the T18 against a pin, but I know from looking at it, the round bit in the crimper is massive

Although had been thinking about some of the many hexagon crimpers you see online, would they be any use ? For BNC style plugs, some of them jaws for regular ratchet crimpers go down very small


I doubt you will find a hex crimper like for a bnc go small enough, even ones for RG174 are much too big a hex.

A & B cavities are both round, B cavity is the correct size for superseal 1.0.

Here is a pin that was crimped by DTA using their proper tool, you can see that the barbs are nicely formed around the insulation. This is 18awg rachem 44 thinwall wire.

You can double clik on it which takes you to my photobucket where you can then zoom right in and see the detail better!

This seems to be going no where so I decided to bite the bullet and order a T10 from Racetronix, tool cost $30, Postage $46 ! £51 all in, may or may not have to pay some import duties. If it's any good then it will be worth it!

I had £12 duty to pay on the T18...oddly it came through local post office rather than Parcel Force which USPS international stuff usually does.
At least meant PF didnt charge their usual £13.50 extortionate handling charge !

My T10 crimp tool arrived today and I've just crimped my first pin with it. It's made a lovely job of it, picture to follow soon!
