MY 3 FAVORITE TOOLS FOR ELECTRICAL WIRING JOBS
Make any electrical wiring job go smoother and quicker!
Here are my three favorite electrical wiring tools that I use for any wiring job. The three tools are:
- Wire cutters
- Wire strippers
- Wire crimpers.
These three tools make any wiring job easy with high-quality results. I include a short video showing how easy it is to cut a wire, strip the ends of a wire, and add connectors to each end with a crimping tool. You will agree with me on how easy and quick it is to do electrical wiring work when the "right tools for the job" are available.
I spent some time looking for an excellent crimping tool that I could use with one hand while holding the wire in the correct position inside the connector with the other hand. I found this crimping tool at our local Home Depot store, and it wasn't that expensive. This crimping tool is so much better than when you try to crimp the connector/wire between the handles. I never liked that crimping set up, which was very awkward, and the resulting crimp was not that good, and many times I had to start over since the wire would pull right out of the connector.
Where I purchased the tools:
- Wire cutters - I don't remember. I have had these for a very long time.
- Wire strippers - Radio Shack (Kronus tool - same as Neiko 01924A tool)
- Wire crimpers - Home Depot (Commercial Electric)
I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding the tools. Send me an email at Steve@SeaDogBoatingSolutions.com if you have any questions.
