I have now purchased this ratchet crimping tool:
and am using it with these crimps:
What I wanted to know is: where do I use the tool
on the crimps? I had originally assumed that the two
sides of the jaw would both go on the central section
of the crimp, but the two sides of the jaw differ. One
has a "flatter" arch and the other has a more "rounded"
I assume then that you use either use the tool twice (both
ways round) on the central section, or once on each side
of the crimp.
I have drawn a diagram showing what the two sides
of the jaws look like. The picture is at:
My instinct is that when crimping the (1&2) end of the
crimp, the flatter (A) jaw should be at (1), and the more
rounded (B) jaw should be at (2). Can anyone confirm
or correct me on this?
Thanks in advance for your help,
