I bought this tool so I wouldn't need to worry about renting a crimper every time I needed to do a little plumbing around the house. It works fine for my needs but it was a little sloppy and takes a bit of adjusting to get it crimping just right. All in all it's great for doing small jobs around the house, or maybe if you only do PEX installs occasionally. It takes a couple minutes to switch the dies from one size to another but otherwise did the job just fine for me. I was pleased to see they included a couple of spare screws that might get lost as you use the tool over time- a very nice touch. Overall I'm glad I bought it.

Great tool!

Comments about 15" Crimp-All (3/8"-3/4") Combo Tool Kit:

This has been a great crimp tool. Right out of the box, every crimp has been a "go" on the go/no go gauge. The only word of caution - plan your run before you crimp! This must be opened to a near 180 degrees to get around the crimp ring. Remember this if you are crimping inbetween studs, however, that does not hinder it's quality. It's a great working tool.

Comments about 15" Crimp-All (3/8"-3/4") Combo Tool Kit:

I purchased this for a replumbing project in my house. I had never worked with PEX before, but I am a pretty regular DIYer. Tool worked fine for me right out of the box, and I have not adjusted it yet. I check every crimp with the go/no-go tester and havne't had a problem yet. No leaks. Swapping out the heads is pretty easy, so I can't complain about that. All in all, its fine.

I liked the crimper!!!

By One eye

Verified Buyer

Comments about 15" Crimp-All (3/8"-3/4") Combo Tool Kit:

Crimper worked well!! However, I was a little confused about the calibration. The crimper is adjustable. There is a go-no-go guage to verify a proper crim. I adjusted the crimper three times and did not see a difference in the go-no-go guage. I was affraid to adjust further. I could not rotate a fitting after crimping. I stopped adjusting the crimper!!

Comments about 15" Crimp-All (3/8"-3/4") Combo Tool Kit:

The tools does a great job of making quality crimps right out of the box, no adjustments necessary. The down side is that it is definitely a two handed tool and it does not fit in tight spaces.

Worked perfectly right out of the case

By Stephen

from MA

Verified Buyer

Comments about 15" Crimp-All (3/8"-3/4") Combo Tool Kit:

No problems with this tool. No fine adjustment needed as initial test crimp revealed that it had been factory set up (I assume) ready to go. Watch orientation of allen head for dies (be sure facing away from fitting) as even at the max 1/4" spacing from fitting it would be easy to shear the head.

      A:

      I only use it with copper rings. by "clamps" are you referring to the
      stainless variety?
      For copper rings it is excellent. I did an entire 2500 sq ft house with
      two baths, kitchen, etc., along with hydronic heating system and didn't
      have one bad crimp.

      This tool works with copper crimp rings, not stainless steel clamp rings. It is a high-quality tool that comes with heads for various crimp sizes and a go-no-go gauge to confirm that connections were made properly.

      It works excellent, if you are talking about the metal ring you place around the end of the Pex Tubing, you the squeeze it once, and its done, allow about a 3/16" to 1/4" to stick up avove the metal ring. I just build a brand new house using all Pex, and not one leak.

      A:

      Not exactly sure what you mean by "hePex" I'm assuming it should've said "the"? The tool pictured comes with different inserts to fit each size of Pex. Use the right insert, the crimp ring and you're in business. As far as your 2nd question goes I personally like Shark bite fittings. You just push the copper in one end and the pex in the other. Haven't had one leak yet. Best of luck with your project!

      You can use crimp-style fittings on Uponor hePEX tubing. Part H020750 would let you connect 3/4" copper to 3/4" PEX using this method.

      A:

      it's just the crimper, it comes with thecrimp plyers, and three different size fittings for 3/8", 1/2", and 3/4" crimps Make sure you have enough room where you put your pex pipe to put the plyers in the ceiling or wall far enough to get a crimp, I found that the expander tool is best for tight spots since you can expand the pipe outside of the wall then push it back in to make the connection

      This method does not require an expander. The fittings are press fit and then you put the clamp on it and compress it with the crimper. There is a template gauge used to ensure the crimp is good. I haven't used it much, but seems to work well.
