So now it's August and I've gained some insight on the use of this tool. Wanting to make sure the wire didn't slip, I was giving the crimp tool squeeze something of a death grip to make it nice and tight. This much pressure is not required. If you lighten up and let the tool do the work, you can squeeze firmly without going white knuckle and the results are much better and the likelyhood of having to fight the tool for possession of the end result goes way down. It still jams now and again but, as I suspected, the more I use it the better the results. I don't crimp on everything but when I do, this is my tool of choice. I now use my crimping pliers to close the crimp cover without marring the surface. I'm upping my stars to 4.
October - The smaller the crimp bead, the better. Huge difference in success rate by going as small as practically possible. When using a 2x1.5mm bead, it rarely fails. Still jams now and again, but getting better and better.
When I squeeze the little handle it closes the cradle where the crimp bead should rest. And I squeeze the other handle it opens where the crimp bead should rest. I have attached photos of what I am talking about. As you can see this is not what the illustration on the back of the package nor what I am seeing on any video how the tool should work.
In fact, I have a necklace on my table right now, which has fairly heavy beads (20 1" polymer clay beads, to be exact). BOTH crimps failed, about 4 hours apart, during the first day after assembly. I've recrimped with the regular crimper and so far, after 2 days, have not had another failure (all crimps were the proper size, sterling silver tube crimps).
My recommendation is not to bother if you can use a regular tool with any success; if you can't, I suppose this might help, but it is touchy to use correctly.
