My cheap ones crimp cables just fine. Don't see why it would need to be any easier, or cost any more money.

Quality of action mainly.
I have spent many years on site,long enough to know the cheap is cheap for reason.
The only tool I pick up cheap is 4" grinders,they get knackered no matter what you spend so I buy them cheap and lob them out when they fail.

I guess I don't run enough volume of work on it to be as concerned. I do know what you mean about grinders. I have about 12 of them, 8 of which have died on duty. Some slack contractors went around doing really sub-standard stucco jobs around here and I use a grinder with a concrete wheel to cut it into sections and pull it off so I can replace the wood rot behind it. One day I bought three Dewalts for $85/ea and burnt out two in the first day. I found these Bosch grinders that came in a 2-pack for $59.99. They all still work.

I have three of their 12" compound mitre saws, one is a double bevel slider, they're okay, but other companies make them just as well. I tend to steer clear of them, the mitre saws I've had for a long time so hadn't had the need to replace any of them, yet. Although I had a bearing burst in my 12" slider that was a major chore to fix, it still seems a little off but cuts just fine.

In other news, I think I'm starting to get the hang of the crimping and sleeving. At least I'm cutting down the production time by a lot. Cut, soldered, crimped, sleeved, and installed a LED strip for my S3 this morning, took about 15 minutes.




Now I just need to work on getting nicer parts for it to illuminate. thumb.gif

I only use MDPC for my builds. Have tried others and I always go back to Nils. Plus, we use MDPC on our switches, so take that as you will.

As for Gemini, all I can say is that it's still under the planning phase. It will more or less be a replacement to the Magnum series.

Sorry I haven't been around much this week. Had finals, and my big CPE yesterday (5 hours of testing and practical stations). I am pleased to say I passed and I will be starting my 3 month internship at the clinic I work at. smile.gif then it's the Board Exams. No more class rooms! Woohoo!

Nils is great guy and his products are solid but for me,the LC one is better.

I do wish people wouldn't pass opinion as fact......

This - the MDPC one is very good which is why it's the base that LC starts from. These crimpers are very different to the cheap ones you get anywhere else. The other difference is that people also use different core wire - Lutro0's version really shines with fatter cored wire e.g. 16AWG - something that the original unmodified one can't handle as well. So a lot depends on the wire you use. If you had an early lutro0 version it also may have struggled with 18AWG, but by the third version it was good on both. If you have an early version talk to Lutro0 and get it fixed! If you've only ever crimped regular 18AWG though you probably won't notice much difference. Those of you who really have tried LC and think the MDPC is better I'd be interested to know why and what wire you used with it.

BTW you'd all be paying a lot more for MDPC if LC wasn't around and Nils would make you get up at 2am to place an order wink.gif So devout MDPCers should still be happy for the competition thumb.gif

Thank you! smile.gif it's been a long journey and it's very surreal, even this morning. I've learned so much and look forward to continue learning. Working with animals is incredibly fun. It's challenging both mentally and physically, but I enjoy seeing the progress an animal makes after we treat them. Hopefully Jim will let me stick around the Lab for a long time to come as well. CL is by far the best company I've ever had the pleasure of working for. And on Vet Techs salary, I could use some extra income for the house my girlfriend and I hope to get soon... As well as that engagement ring! Lol

Congrats to the GF on the ring, sorry for your wallet tongue.gif

I will be in the ring hunting stage soon. Got less than an year to graduate as a PhD and that's when I want to pop the question myself.
