Bob, is that the tool that British Wire sells? Looks like it does a 2-point
crimp, rather than hexagonal. I was under the impression that the 'proper'
tool did a hexagonal crimp. Much more expensive, but also much better.
Lacking a crimp tool, I just solder. And as you say, the original PVC
insulation generally melts for a short distance ... lots of my bullets have
a section of heat shrink to cover the melted area.
