crimp tool for JST XH pins

Does anyone know what kind of crimper is to be use for these type of pins? Specifically the open barrel pin type is SXH-001T-P0.6 . These seem really small .

I have been manually crimping and soldering them for now, but its a real pain to do it with needle nose pliers .

Tks

I use the crimper as linked in post #2 above and it works beautifully. Picked mine up for ~$5. Never had a crimp pull out and I nearly always yank on the wires to disconnect. I know, shame on me...

I have a very used JST-XH OEM crimp tool I will sell. Works great and had crimped at least 10,000 pins, but I want to bring out my new unscratched one. Also, being it crimped so many, the pin holder is a tad loose but the pins still hold in place fine, just not "as fine" as new.

These make PERFECT crimps. It even has the "ratchet for dummies" and the pin holder flips out so you can stuff a new pin into one of the three correct wire size holders. I use these for many other pins but nothing works on the XH pins like the Real McCoy of XH crimpers.

New cost close to $470 shipped. I will sell this one for $350 shipped to lower 48.

It looks like your crimp tool has the right thickness. Mine is just too thick . I will try to sell it off and get the same one as yours.

I just received mine and started to try it out. The crimp looks very good but how do you keep the pin straight after crimp. After the crimp there seems to be a slight angle between the crimped conductor part and the part in front of the crimp ( ie the part that engages the male pin ) making it difficult to insert the pin into the housing . Is this because I apply too much pressure?

sportflyer, that is the most common problem with using any other crimper than the OEM JST crimper. That is why I broke down and bought those.
Patience, you need a LOT of patience. Maybe you can straighten the pin when it is in the crimper? Try that.
Also may want to not crimp it quite as hard.
