Anyone tried this type of pex crimper?

Here's the pic that I saw on ebay:

You use vice grips to close the jaw shut, in case that's not obvious.

I woulnd't buy it for $70 plus shipping (that's the 'buy it now' price) b/c I think I could find a 1/2 and 3/4 full-size tool on ebay for only a little morem but I'm still curious if anyone has any feedback on them.

Thanks,

Chris

My experience with PEX used the expander tool... Bought it new over the internet from a PEX supplier - and the other materials as well - used it - and sold it on E-bay for more than I paid for it.

Spend the extra money on a real PEX tool. You wouldn't be able to get that in a tight area either.
