Can you show some examples of proper crimping tools (preferably affordable for the home mechanic) that work on standard automotive crimp-on connectors. Links to websites where they can be purchased would be nice. I have had problems with the crimps produced by the typical cheap crimping tools.

for the tool I use. I bought it from an aircraft tool vendor at the EAA Convention at Oshkosh years ago and it cost me $20. There are other styles on the market, but the key is that the forming jaws will not open until they have crimped the connector base with a predetermined force to a predetermined size so every crimp is uniform in size and shape.
