That looks like a copy of the Burndy OH-25, if I'm not mistaken. You can get those on eBay pretty cheap. Often in the 25-50 dollar range.

I have a hard time sourcing the insulated barrels for that crimper [OH-25]. My POCO uses them, and would like to use them instead of mechanical splices. I found a site once, but lost the link.

I dunno. I can get the common Insulinks as a stock item.

For the price of that crimper you can get the Greenlee K09-2GL for about $100 more. Thats the crimper I have and it crimps 8 to 4/0.
