crimping tool help....

hi,

i'm starting to do my aux fuse block install and i'm going to also be helping my friend with his stereo install. Can anyone recommend a good buy cost friendly crimping tool that will crimp all the way down to 4 awg wire?

I don't want to spend a ton on a tool I will only use a few times.

I typically just use wire cutters. Takes a bit of practice, but if you get it down right and consistent, it'll do very strong crimps. Takes a bit of practice though, like i said.

Why crimp when you can solder.

Klein.

But for 4ga, it's not going to be cheap. The $20 Kleins are only good up to the yellow connectors. Use regular pliers to set it then solder.
