Someone posted on here a week or so ago about where to get a ‘small’ pex crimp tool.
I just ordered (and received) one I bought from :
(scroll to bottom of page)
Nice, well made, about the size of a pair of pliers or wire cutters (with the same kind of angled neck. Handles about 11 inches long only open maybe an inch, so it’ll work in tight places (under cabinets, etc.).
By the way, this one doesn’t come with a ‘go/no go’ gauge, but you can order them on the site also.
Made the mistake of buying my first from Lowes - it was useless - about the size of a LARGE pair of bolt cutters, and the arms opened almost straight out - needed at least 3 feet of space around it just to open the jaws.
Hope this helps some of you just starting to give Pex a try. Trust me - spend the few extra bucks on a ‘compact’ crimper.
