I've never even considered buying an expensive crimper for doing anything 10ga or smaller. If you're not doing electrical work on regular basis an expensive crimper is a huge waste of money IMO. Heck, i've done a bunch of electrical projects and I've never thought to myself that I needed a better crimper. I don't know what brand/model I have, but it was probably $10-$15. It's a step up from the basic el cheapo stripper/cutter/crimper. I only upgraded because the stripper section of the el cheapo was terrible. It wasn't an issue with the crimper.

You should be able to rent one at a local rental shop. Shouldn't cost too much.
