Re: Looking for better crimp connectors

I think the standard red-blue crimpers are made by AMP.  I thought
they would be cool too but found they cost about $300.  They are
certified by cutting apart the splice, polishing it and verifying no
voids.  The inside of the splice looks like a solid piece of metal. 
For some reason they cut the crimpers in two pieces when they failed
