    1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING - Poor Quality, Misaligned Jaws
    By Bull 30290 on December 19, 2018
    I've had a reliable GB crimper (same basic model as this) for about 20 years that has worked great, but it has finally gotten worn and is due for replacement. I ordered this expecting it to be the same thing. However when I received it I found the same problem as reviewed by others: the jaws are grossly misaligned and not suitable for crimping. I was really disappointed by this and was expecting the same quality tool as I have trusted for years. At first I thought these might even be counterfeit. I'm not sure what happened with GB along the way, and for a well known brand like GB to have such a glaring quality problem like this is surprising. How does something like this even pass their QA process? I had to return my set, and will look elsewhere for a replacement.

    5.0 out of 5 stars great quality. a little different from other crimpers
    Reviewed in Canada on December 28, 2020
    This is actually the second pair of this style of groupers that I have owned. I just randomly seeing these on Amazon so I picked up a second set. For my tool box at home. I have used these crimpers for over 10 years and my first pair is still is good as the day I bought them.. what I like about these is that the crimping surface is fairly wide so if you're cramping a lot of insulated terminals it is really a good pair of crimpers for those. Type of crimps.
    the crimp surface is wide... if you are look in for the pointy type of crimp from the Thomas&Betts or Channellock crimper these are not for you... those tools have their place . these GB ceimpers will not pierce the casing on insulated terminals.

    Now if I can only find a pair of the wire strippers I have of the same brand from 10 years ago I would buy another set. They have similar sites available now but they have the silly little circuit tester on the handle which I dislike.
