 +[[https://​​2xfAnmo|IWISS IWS-2820 Mini Micro Open Barrel Crimping Tool]] \\
 +<wrap em><​wrap lo>Not the greatest but probably good enough for occasional use. The three pairs I have of these all have some difference in quality but for the price I didn't expect much.</​wrap></​wrap>​ \\

-JST \\ +<wrap em><​wrap lo>This was my first crimping tool for wire-to-board type connectors before I knew any better. They crimp both the wire and the insulation at the same time but in my opinion are more of a pain to use than the other tools that you first crimp the wire then the insulation.</​wrap></​wrap> ​\\

-===== Tools I Use =====+==== Wire Strippers ​==== 
 +[[https://​​2OnVx9n|Klein Tools 1019 Klein Kurve Wire Stripper / Crimper / Cutter]] \\ 
 +<wrap em><​wrap lo>My most used and preferred wire stripping tool. I thought the Irwin tool below was great but I think that was because in the past I always had used cheap tools. I was hesitant to try this pair due to my past experiences with lower quality tools of this style. I rarely use the Irwin tool anymore. </​wrap></​wrap>​

-[[https://​​2xnMfSq|Engineer Inc PA-20 Precise Universal ​Wire Terminal Crimping Tool]] \\ +<wrap em><​wrap lo>These work okay but I prefer the Klein Tools 1019I find these don't work too well when you only to remove two or three millimeters.</​wrap><​/wrap> ​\\

 +[[https://​​2Ts5Mdk|Hakko CHP-170 Micro Cutter]] \\ 
 +<wrap em><​wrap lo>These are good for cutting 16 gauge wire and smaller. Work well for trimming component leads. These have lasted longer than some of the other wire cutters of similar type which have likely been low quality clones and this pair is doesn'​t cost much more. Another use is trimming small pieces of plastic from printed models but be sure not to cut anything too thick else risk one of the jaws breaking off.</​wrap></​wrap>​ \\
