I was thinking about getting the Hansen kit with the Deluxe crimper and wire strippers.

Thanks for the link with explanations.

I've used the Hansen crimpers a lot and as Glen says they work pretty well. Assessing depth of insertion of the wire into the connector (when it's mounted ready to go in the crimpers) takes practice and judgement - too much and you have bare wires over lapping the end of the crimp - too little and the 'cord hold' wings are onto bare wire. The 3 rather than 0 shape of the Hansen die also tends to make the cord hold wings pierce into rather than wrap around the insulation.
