Square Crimping Tool

Think this thing would work for building and repairing speedometer cables?

Re: Square Crimping Tool

Yes it should work for a speedo and other cables to crimp the ends on to the housing.

Re: Square Crimping Tool

I'm actually looking for a hex crimper like my old boss has for bullet connectors and that popped up, speedo cables was the first thing that popped in my head for it.

I've realized that the tool I'm looking for is specialty vintag stuff and will cost money. Hell, the connectors it's for actually cost real money compared to most.

You just looking for something like this? I use these to put factory finish connectors on all my wiring.

Works on this style bullet connectors

I keep being cheap and lazy but I've been meaning to get a stash of that style connectors because the shape also makes them easy to solder the wire in if you have a decent soldering gun.

What came with those? Everything Japanese I've worked on over the years have used the style I use. No solder required.
