06 September 2013 Question by: Gary
Q. Hi What size crimp would you suggest when using 7/0.2mm wire Thanks
A. Hi Gary. Thank you for your question. We would suggest as 7/0.2mm is approximately 0.22mm squared cross sectional area the white 0.5mm bootlace ferrules are the most suitable - 33-1280.


22 May 2013 Question by: Lior
Q. Is there a +/- tolerance you recommend for cable size against the crimp size, obviously we don't use a smaller crimp than cable size but can we for example use a 1mmsq crimp on a .6mmsq cable if it is firm. Is there a reccomended amount of force to apply that should be tested to ensure the crimp doesn't come off.
A. Hi Lior. Thank you for your question. Ideally use the correct size for the cable. Using the specific crimp tool the pressure would be correct to prevent it falling off. However using a smaller cube usually leads to problems of pulling off - try it and see. I have done it but I double back the smaller cable at the end to increase the amount of wire inside the crimped part - as it strip off twice the amount needs, fold the stripped section back on itself then crimp it - it is far less likely to come out then.
