1/2" PEX Crimp Tool
It does not have instructions should guage indicator require adjustment to crimp jaws. It appears to be able to crimp rings as advertized. therefore I would give this tool an acceptable rating.
Ask a Question
It appears that there is the ability to make adjustments on this tool [ between #0 thru #5]. The tool was shipped set on #1, when and under what circumstances, will it require adjustment?
The crimp tool may require periodic calibration when constantly in use. The Go-No-Go gauge supplied with the kit is used to check whether the connection was done properly. When the gauge is a No-Go, you adjust the dial and check the connection again and repeat the process if needed until it's a "Go".

I was wondering about the operation of this tool. Is it the style that opens up by pulling down on the back handle (linkage inside of too allows for minimum handle spread). Or do the handles swing apart to open the jaw.
It is the former one.

Can these be used as 1-handed pex crimpers?
No, this tool has to be operated using both hands. Due to the nature of the connection method, there are really no 1-hand crimpers available. The only 1-hand style PEX tool (and it's for cinch rings) we have is Everhot PXT3011.
