Rod, they probably have one specified but in my experience a generic type tool can be used with care and get a good enough crimp.

Yeah I'm with Sam on this.  I've got what I thought was just a regular crimper that didn't cost megga bucks that I use on'em and it works fine.  There are some that won't though.  If you need a pic I can probably arrange that later this afternoon.

Rod my crimper does a crimp like a spark plug crimper does.  I also solder them as well.  The upper part of the tool curls the two sides down in the middle.  I found that the part of it that goes around the insulation needs to be shortened up some on small wire.
