OT - Has anyone ever fix mounted their terminal crimper?

Have you ever fix mounted your terminal crimper to free up one hand, speed things up and have less mistakes**?

I'm picturing this to:

1. keep the crimper steady and in one place, while
2. allowing me to feed the crimper for doing multiple terminal connections, in an assembly line fashion.


** Mistakes where the crimper, wire and/or terminal moves right when you go to crimp it.
Been there done that a number of times. Grin

Sure... crimped lugs on 24-10 ga. wires for 8 hrs a day many times...

Determine what is comfortable and fab a stand / clamp to hold it on table.

I found by adding an extension on the trigger handle eliminated even more fatigue.
