Improved PEX Crimper
I’ve been doing a lot of PEX plumbing which involves crimping stainless steel bands. Not the kind of band that plays music but a ring of steel that is crushed by the tool to tighten the PEX plastic tube, the water lines, down on the brass fittings such as Tee’s and adapters in our plumbing system.
Crimping 1/2″ bands or even 3/4″ bands is not so bad. But the 1″ bands, especially in awkward situations, is very difficult. To improve the ease of crushing steel Will added extensions to the handles of one of my PEX band crimping tools. The extra leverage makes it much easier.
