Do I REALLY need one - no.

Did I REALLY want one - yes.
Does TOOH know what I paid for it - NO!!!

I have been window shopping eBay and Craigslist for an "inexpensive" one for a while and this was about as "cheap" as I have seen. Micrometer adjust crimp control with air over hydraulic foot pump, pusher plate, 1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" dies. I figure it will pay for itself on or about the 100th hose assembly so please send me all your old worn out hoses.

Much more likely my sons recoup the cost at my estate sale ;-)

I bought it because it was adjustable but so far the documented micrometer setup has proven to be a royal PITA when using anything other than Gates hose and fittings. I am in the process of reverse engineering that.

Did your machine come with the MC31/MC32 or MC21/MC22 die sets? The 21/22 dies have notched jaws and the resultiing serrations make it impossible to accurately measure the finished crimp with conventional calipers or mic''s. Looks like I will have to find an inexpensive blade micrometer to keep in the crimper chest.

I have the " base model" at work. Uses the die shims instead of the micrometer and has the electric pigtail control instead of the foot pedal. We keep it in a compartment of the service truck for sprayer repairs in the field, and it has proven to be priceless when one factors in down time.

Not to worry. This is a Gates MobileCrimp 4-20 crimper designed specifically for mobile service and can be used on just about any work surface. The head tilts back and locks to facilitate inserting the hose from the underside.

I will be using it in the shop and would prefer not to have to fiddle with the tilt mechanism so it will be mounted with a small overhang and firmly locked close to vertical. The pusher swings to the rear to allow loading the dIes and that counterbalance makes it a bit unstable if the swivel clamps are not really tight.

No such thing as too many tools. My problem is not remembering I already have one after I have built of purchased a new one.

Amen to that! Just two or three months ago, I stumbled across a second riveting tool that I didn't remember buying.

Regrettably it's getting to be that way with me. Or else I know I have one, just can't find it and have to buy another.

Very nice! We switched to Gates fittings from Parker at work because of numerous Parker quality issues. They claim to have fixed the issues now but it's too late.

I could have used dat today... One of my antique electric door openers broke a cable (3/16 cable) I had to turn out some crimps to tie it back together... Standing on the last step of a 12ft ladder I got'er done.. If I had dat tool I would have got it up there somehow just to use it..
Cool tool its in the right hands...

That is what I bought the little roller chest for. Dies go in the top drawer, hose ends in the middle two, and pump with hose in the bottom one. When not in use it will tuck nicely away up against a wall. Still need to cut out a piece of plywood to stiffen the top so I can bolt the stand down and let the crimper overhang the front edge.

The nice thing about this crimper is you dial in the crimp diameter with the micrometer built into the head and it doesn't require a boatload of die spacers. I have a small order of hose ends coming tomorrow and first task will be some experimental crimps to work out the crimp data table for them. The tables in the manual are specific to (gasp!!!) Gates fittings which are a bit too pricey for my budget. I'd also like to pick up 5/8" and 3/4" dies but at $250 each new I'll have to get lucky on eBay.....

It just looked like you had already bolted it down to the tool box with 5/16 or 3/6 bolts.It won't work to good bolted down there.

TOH,Noow you just need to weld up a nice stand on wheels to mount it on so you can use it.
