I'd rather be lucky than good.

I'm getting ready to redo my 12V house part of my electrical system.  The biggest goal is to get rid of the automatic-reset circuit breakers installed by the PO.  I'm going to all push-to-reset marine breakers I'm figuring.  They are all spade terminal in the back, and since I wanted to do this right once, could someone send me a link to the 100 dollar crimper thing that has been mentioned in multiple posts?  I want to get the right one.  Additionally, if there is a better lug than the blue ones at autozone, a link to proper female spade lugs would be appreciated as well.  I have become a solder/shrinkwrap guy, but what I have been doing lately is just pulling the blue plastic piece off, kind of mashing it on, then soldering it and shrink wrapping.  I want to do a better job this time so I don't need to do any rework.  Thanks for your help!

Amphenol makes the terminals and the correct crimper.  Not inexpensive.

For the best results, pick a good brand, T&B, AMP, Burndy, etc., and use the same brand tool and terminals.

From many years of experience in telecommunication, I prefer T&B, but the others are just as good.

read this before you buy anything or crimp a connection.  Good article.  Note that soldered connections in crimps haven't been considered good practice for decades in aero work.

You cannot beat the Ancor (marine) double crimp terminals with a funnel ring best you can use on a bus IMO I use those for everything and have for years

good luck

I use the Ancor brand too, I buy them at a marine shop.  I confess I don't use the right tool, but I get it done.
