Each terminal style requires a dedicated tool, and each tool generally has multiple stations based on terminal size. So far we've worked with non-insulated terminals, which generally call for these dimple/cavity dies. While these antique Vaco 1900-series pliers (now Klein) feature a station for each terminal size, the Klein 1006 pliers Rich Fox uses have only one station set for 14- to 22-gauge (red and blue) terminals. To crimp 10- to 12-gauge terminals, he widens (not deepens) the cavity in a second set of pliers.
