Who crimps their own?

I have always soldered when making my own servo extensions, do many of you crimp your own stuff?

Can anyone recommend a good and inexpensive crimper?

Brad,

I got these in a kit from Hansen years ago and they work great. The deluxe kit was well worth the price

I've heard this one is basically the same tool for half the price, but I haven't tried either...

I crimp my own servo connectors. I have the Hansen Hobbies crimper. Works great. Will probably never solder extensions again
