This tools is constructed of what appears to be a stamped steel pieces riveted together. It feels relatively well manufactured, but only time will tell just how durable it is. The handles have a slightly cushioned rubber grip. The plastic die supports both keyed and non-keyed IDC connectors, probably upto 50 pins (I'm only crimping 10-pin connectors at the moment.) One thing to note on my pair of crimpers is that the die is slightly loose in the channel it rides in. This can be a little irritating, but can be resolved easily with a bit of tape where the die mates with the tool. Another thing to note about the method used for mating the die to the tool is that it uses relatively thin plastic wings that press fit to the steel. This will likely be a failure mode for this tool. Hopefully replacement dies can be purchased, but I haven't looked.
As far as usability goes, I wouldn't want to be crimping with this all day as I'm sure that fatigue would set in rather quickly. With...
