Crimp tool for banana plugs

11 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can buy a crimp tool for use with standard 4mm crimp banana plugs? Are they expensive?

Many thanks,

Lefty

:shock: - Right well that's the end of that idea then. I'll just get some regular screw type banana plugs for my new speaker cable then.

Surely there must be a cheaper, non QED branded version around?

As to solder, I don't think my iron is powerful enough to get the solder to bond with the banana plug itself. Although I could use flux to aid with this I suppose...

i bought a £5 pen style blowtorch for soldering. with heavy guage cable you wont get enough heat in the cable to solder effectively.

It's the only crimp tool with enough pressure to get the O2 out of the crimp.

:( - I'll leave it to the dealers then.

The new cable is only QED 79 strand @ £1/m so definitely not economical to get that crimp tool! The banana plugs cost more than the cable :green:

THIS will probably do it...

Otherwise, save the effort and an extra connection by just using bare wire!
