    I am guessing hundreds, not thousands of crimps. The price doesn't bother me for what I want. Put the ferrule on the end of the wire and then mash down on the handles of my super duper crimpers as hard as I can, next!!! That is what I want.

    Better question would be is there cheaper acceptable brand

    50 to 300 euros per pliers for the small ones(need five), one medium sized Klauke for up to 50mm2 (500 eur) and hydraulic Klauke crimper for up to 300mm2 (2000 eur)

    These actually cover a lot:

    I don't think I need the hydraulic crimper or the medium sized Klauke. So I ammend my first statement. Just relatively small wires need to be crimped!

    These should cover everything you need in that case:

    I have kept looking at the Lidl wire crimping set for £7-99, the crimp pliers look super sophisticated ratchet crimps, and the price can't be beaten, I have used many of their budget tools, and with the three year warranty, you cant't go wrong at that price. the problem is I probably have 6 or 7 sets of crimping pliers, which is completely overkill for my occasional use, now I have retired from the industry, and have become a full time tinkerer and builder of odd machines!

    I've crimped hundreds of ferrules with one of these. https://goo.gl/images/44LnSU
    It's automatic and krimps up to 6mm^2 and leaves a nice hexagon compact finish. There is also a square type.
