So why the two-star rating? That comes from the last part of the item headline - "with interchangeable die set." It's true, the die set included is held in the jaws with screws such that you can remove them and theoretically interchange them with others. Unfortunately, the tool does not include any other dies and the die mounting profile is not like any other "standard" ones that I've managed to find. Thinking maybe the manufacturer wanted to keep you buying their dies, I took a look at their website - and found nothing relevant except this very tool. So while it does include an "interchangeable die set," as far as I can tell you cannot interchange the included die for any other die set(s) available to purchase. Hmm.
I also wanted to mention that if your wire is under 22 AWG or has thin insulation it will work fine in smaller jaw. But with thicker wires, I had to crimp in bigger jaw first and then finish up job in smaller one.
I did the same inspection and a lot of research, and after a brief orientation period of trying different approaches I am now achieving excellent results with a very low failure rate (maybe 1 in 20). The are a couple of keys to success. First, the jaws have 2 different functions: crimping the tabs that go around the insulation and second, the tabs that go around the stripped part of the wire. Proper alignment is an absolute necessity to achieve the proper result. The connector must be inserted to the right depth (this varies with the male and female connectors), it must be flat and not twisted in the jaws. (Oh, and you have to use stranded wire, of course!) Some reviews have you align the connector on the left (looking down on the tool) but this is incorrect. The following works consistently for me:
1. Strip stranded (I used standard AWG22 stranded hookup wire) wire to 2.5mm for female, 3mm for male. This does not seem like much, but you only want enough length to cover the area under the wire-gripping tabs. Measure your connectors with calipers to ensure they are the same.
2. Close the crimper 1 click
3. Insert connector from the left with insulation-gripping tabs facing up
