Remodel and New Build GC
Andrew....I have one I especially like as it's crimp is at the very end....seems a convenience in getting the tool into the box and away from other wires....but it does not have a name on it.Shoot me a couple other examples of a good crimping tool, I like any excuse to buy a new tool.
But the ones posted here work fine also.....
If you're just starting electrical, and want to treat yourself to a great wiring tool, let me advise you to a wire (not cable) stripper. Rather then the cheap one'which cut the wire according to it's guage and then pull the tool off to remove the wire insulation.... get the one that sorta grabs/clamps the wire where you want to begin the strip, and then grabs the strip part and pulls it off. It is much easier and does not score the copper. Several makers, maybe $15-20.
I understand your not wanting to argue with the beuacratic flunked-out of the trades building officials. Let them know that you want to do it right...make them feel important on any inconsequential non-expensive issues....doesn't hurt to have a box of donuts on location either.
Make friends of them....
EDIT: I should note that they are mostly fine and knowledgeable and helpful guys/ladies....but like anything...there are a few dumb ones. I think I've only encountered maybe 3-4 jerks.
