Anyone know of a place that sells surplus crimps?
I go through alot of crimps ranging from standard H-crimps for services to barrel crimps and lugs for all sizes of wire.

I am looking for a place that sells alot of them cheaper than the supply houses.

I crimp everything, so I go through alot.

I'd be intersted as well...

I just got a working Kearney WH2 on EBay for $40... not bad for a (new list) $1800 tool!

Of course, it didn't come with dies, so for now it's a neat toy.

I heard that Hi-Line Utility Supply
has "universal adaptors" for most models of crimping tools. I'm going to call and find out.

There's a trade mag "Electrical Advertiser", that has an abundance of surplus, used, new etc equipment, and tools.

There site is and

I'm not a PC guy, so the 'sites' above are not links!

Can be a great 'toy' store, but don't beat the e-bay dael you got.
