RE: The problem....


I talked again with Mike. He told me he had a cheap (like $40) Klein tool that was very close to being the correct size. He was going to take it to a machinist buddy to see about milling the jaw so it'd be a perfect fit. I'll let you know I what kind of success he has with that. And you are bang on with your assessment of the rigidity of those tabs. Without the correct tool they are a PITA to get them to form a proper crimp.
