A quick EB as it has not been much of a day for blippery.
As I have been doing some electrical work I have bought myself a couple of crimp tools which should make terminating the cables easier. These are the cheap & cheerful versions made in China - I can't see me doing enough to make buying the better versions worthwhile.
The top one crimps ferrules onto the conductors - mostly used for screw terminals, the bottom one for rings and blade type connectors, the sort of thing more likely to be found in a car or van.
No snow here in the south of Warwickshire, just cold and damp, but at least no rain today.
