What is an adjustment of the crimping force? How should it be used and what for?


In fact, the adjustment wheel changes the distance between the dies. Initially, all the tools made by KBT are adjusted for optimal crimping with good results. After some time of use, the jaws get slightly apart so you can adjust it for more force by turning the special wheel towards the sign “+”. If you have installed new dies you might need to loosen the jaws a bit for proper crimping force. In this case turn the adjustment wheel towards the “-“ sign.
