Electric Wiring

JUN 25 1944

Here is a hand tool which firmly fastens terminals onto electric wiring without the use of solder and heat or any other form of cement.

Pressure on the handles crimps the terminal connections to form a strong joint which offers little electrical resistance and resists corrosion.
