Best Wire crimps

Postby pricefarm » Wed Mar 08, 2017 8:43 am

What are the best brand crimps to use on barb wire and woven wire fence ? I have a lot of fencing to repair on some rental ground I figured that using crimps would be faster.

I'm 46 years old, and been doing this since birth. I found out about crimps on this forum about a year ago. I would have to say that life is better now.

I've always said staytuff, but I've been using these for a couple months. It's what I use now.
Get you three good crimps and fold over the tag ends.
Half the price of staytuff..made in USA
