go no-go tool


Im doing my first crimps on my pex and didnt want to continue without making sure of a couple things.

First off once i finished my crimp, i use the go no-go tool. The go side fits no problem, but are you supose to be able to turn it right around? Theres one little point where its tight and needs a little push to continue, but i cant twist it right around.

Second, if i do a crimp wrong, can i re-use the fitting after taking the ring off?

I forgot to mention, the no-go side doesnt fit, but if i push hard enough i can get it to fit, im thinking this is normal.

My GNG will go around the crimp ring...the no go side will not, not even if I push hard. You might want to check the settings on your crimping tool. You can reuse the fitting after removing it...if you're using copper rings, did you pick up a ring splitter? It makes the task of removing the rings very easy...and while they are pricey, salvaging a few fittings covers the cost.

Well i tried to adjust the tool from 0 to 1, that setting is too tight and the no go side fit no problem, so i know setting 0 is just fine. This is the compact version of the tool, i rented it at home depot. Should there be a concern if the no-go doesnt fit without a hard enough push and if i cant got completly around with the go side, about 90% will go around
