    I use these crimpers for custom length servo wires. They may be small enough for other connectors. They are listed as ACC175 on this page http://www.maxxprod.com/mpi/mpi-4.html#Crimper

    Spent 3 hours redoing wiring harnesses with that exact tool the other night. I crimped about 60 pins (m/f). Here's one tip that's probably obvious - but sped up my workflow.

    Use a pair of needle nose pliers to lightly bend the bottom part of the pin to "catch" the wire, then do the remaining wires. Once you have them all grabbing the wire and you're happy they're all lined up - THEN go in and load them in the crimper. I used to preload the crimper with the pin, but I kept getting inconsistent positioning (because you're feeding the wire blind), or the wire would fall out just as I was about to clamp down.

    As for the 1.25 pico blade housings, those are Hirose connectors DF13 class I believe. I ruled those out once I saw how much the proprietary crimping tool cost. I could just have easily done it with needle nose pliers, but with 60 connections to do, the regular size header pins won out.

    I have that same tool but I get much better results with this one;

    I like to tin the leads being crimped. Then I use needle nose pliers to bring the two wings together over the stripped and tinned portion. Next I use a cheap automotive DC crimping tool to press that into a crimp. Then I touch a soldering iron with a tinned tip to the little bit of the exposed and tinned lead for 1-2 seconds - just enough to flow a little solder. Last I use the automotive crimp tool again to bend the wings around the insulated part of the wire and secure it. You can now hang 5lbs off that connection.
