Hey there, had someone else crimp some fittings on a couple small pieces of pex for me. Long story short, I just needed these two pieces, dont have the tools, didnt want to spend the money on something I probably wont use any time soon.
Anyway, went to the local Winnelson Plumbing Supply, and they hooked me up with the fittings and pieces I wanted, and said they would crimp it for me as well, but the guy helping me said he wasnt the best in the world at it.
The crimp worked fine on the go-nogo gauge, but as I look at it, it seems like it almost might be too far back.
Sorry for the strange picture, but its the best I could do to show you all:
He said he crimped as far forward as he could, but the crimp tool kept hitting the plastic on the faucet fitting and prohibiting forward progress.
In my hand it looks like the crimp ring clears the first ridge but just barely.
I dont know much about this sort of stuff, just watched a lot of youtube videos and read some forums haha. Just enough knowledge to be dangerous
Thoughts? Both pieces turned out basically the same.
