The DD 120 has two operating speeds and a set of colored LED lights that indicates the pressure needed. It is compatible with a wide range of Hilti core bits. Hilti; 800-879-8000; www.hilti.com

Soft-Handled Crimping Tool: Less Strain During Use Soft-Handled Crimping Tool: Less Strain During Use The Comfort Crimp line of crimping tools feature soft-grip handles designed to reduce strain during use. The tools are employed to crimp terminals or lugs onto copper or aluminum wire in various electrical and heavy equipment applications. According to the manufacturer, the redesigned tool requires 25% less force to complete a crimp than previous models. The crimp tool’s Shure-Stake mechanism is designed to hold the crimped terminal and wire until enough force has been applied to complete the crimp. The Crimp-Assit foot on the base of the tool allows it to be rested on a hard surface for increased stability during more difficult crimps. Thomas & Betts; 800-816-7809; www.tnb.com
