Thats cheap, if I wasn't trying to give up fixing things I'd buy one of them.

I have wanted a battery terminal crimper for years, but was going to spend 100s on one. Thanks for the offer but.

I can always use it to back hand the boy, he is too big now to take a belt to   :grin :grin

A bump on this one. The above link to the big criper still takes you to an ebay page with the same crimper. I have been using the 8 ton 4-70mm one for a few jobs, works a treat. Of course I have not had to do any of my own, only others, as the jcar crimper works well on the smaller stuff. You can get heavier duty terminals that might need the extra grunt of the hydraulic crimper.

I just ordered one of these crimpers.
Why? Because I don't have one.
