I do a fair amount of crimping to make custom length cables. My crimper isn't the best. So after it is crimped and before the tabs are crimped on the insulation, I very quickly wick some solder into the area that crimped the bare wire. Then I crimp the insulation part. I figure I get the better contact of crimping but the solder gives me peace of mind that it won't let go.

I think I just need to finally get a good crimping tool.
