Those are pretty small pins to hand crimp, you must have better eyesight than I do (but, then again, most people do).

😮

I own several crimpers, but my personal favorite is the Engineer PA-09.  These are not ratcheting crimpers, and they take a few tries to get used to (all crimpers do), but the results are great.  I rarely use any other model now.

They have a pretty extensive compatibility chart that you can check to see which of their crimpers is best for you, from it I suspect the PA-09 that I have is the one that might suit you.

Note that these are a bit pricier than your "$19.95 Amazon Crimpers", but they are extremely well made (in Japan) and worth the money.  They are still under 100 dollars, which when you consider professional crimpers start at about 500 dollars, is still a bargain.

Hope that helps!
