They are a ratchet type crimper, a wire stripper and some micro nippers.
The ratchet crimper is the one to get as it takes the brains out of crimping - giving the perfect pressure every time.
The wire stripper is an auto type which if you view the video below you will see has a complicated action that grips the wire and then strips off a certain amount (set by the little metal angle on the end) and then releases the whole lot. This stripper has an AWG (American Wire Gauge) range that will cover almost everything I am doing (bar the battery and starter wires).
The micro nippers are just the thing for cutting tie wraps in hard to reach places, and they cut with a flush edge so that the tie wrap doesn't end up drawing blood from you later down the line when you are reaching in to do some maintenance.
I'm also getting a bunch of parts anodised this week.
Firstly to protect the aluminium from corrosion and secondly because I don't like the gold coloured anodising that has been done on several parts. I'll be going for silver on everything.
