    Think I paid about that for a smaller amount with less sizes/choices...

    They would probably outlast me and my children, just tin the ends and add a little heat shrink when needed never been a fan of crimp fittings.

    I tend to buy the sizes I want as opposed to boxes of sizes I'll never use.
    Beal UK does a good range at a respectable price.

    Crimped ends on wires is one of the differences between a professional look job and a rats nest.

    Excellent kit.
    Instead of having a single colour code scheme, have both German and French colours along with some total random colours, just to ensure you're never quite sure what size you're picking :-)

    That's the style I've got, and they do the job.
    For screw terminals, all they need to do is crimp the terminal on enough it won't fall off, as the terminal will clamp it on properly. Even a gentle nip with side cutters would do the job.

    It's if you're using spring/push in terminals, where you really need to make sure the crimp is done well.
