If you're looking for a high-quality precision open barrel crimping tool with an interchangeable die system at an affordable price, look no further than the Engineer Inc PAD-01 wire crimping tool.
This crimping tool is made of the same high-quality materials as Engineer Inc’s very popular PA-09, PA-20 and PA-21 models, but with their new patent-pending interchangeable die system. This system expands the capability of a single crimping tool to cover a die width range from .7mm through 3.7mm while maintaining precise alignment.
Made in Japan, this premium tool features a well-designed locking mechanism that’s comfortable to operate and that can be operated by either a right or left handed operator. A wire cutter is also incorporated with a wire stripping hole. The ergonomic grips are semi-soft and provide a good, comfortable feel that allows you to work without stressing your hands!

the quality of the dies is excellent, and it feels great in the hand as a tool - the grip is rubbery without being too soft, nor sticky
non-ratcheting. a very comfortable size to use
very satisfied to own this ... i don't think i'll need any others for my wiring jobs (micro stuff up to 3s)... a recommended buy !Using this tool I was able to crimp 0.7 mm wide terminals, which are so small, that I needed to use magnifiers to set them up correctly in the crimp die.
The crimped terminals look professional, are not deformed and fit perfectly in the tiny terminal housings.
The difference between the dies that have positions for the same width terminals, is in the thickness of the die
I can recommend this tool.
