    The insulated above are actually cheaper than the non insulated below.

    Thanks, buddy. Prices and selection look good. That website is now in my bookmarks.

    Another suggestion: Remember the "flag" style crimp-on connectors? Where the crimped wire will come out the side, presumably for cramped quarters or terminal ends just a little too close to the control panel or compressor cover, or to make the wiring better fitting inside a full control panel.
    Just grind off the "cutter" end of the doyle and you will have a good crimper for the flags at a reasonable price that also will not crush the female spade as you crimp. Been using one for years.

    I had the same screw driver. I got to use it one time. It literally didn’t even undo its first screw that I tried to undo with it before the tip snapped off.

    I just picked up a new set of Klein crimpers like you show (but now they also have a wire stripper incorporated below the pivot point. The problem with them though is that the tips don’t touch. Can’t even cut a tie strap all the way through unless you set it right at the back of the cutting jaw.

    i have Klein screwdrivers and pliers, i like them a lot and never had any issues
    German tools are well made too but way to expensive.
    bought some red brand and yellow black brand, not even close in quality to Klein
    i will keep buying Klein since they are very good tools
