    This must be a very special tool; the Newark website shows it costing over $800.00 ???

    The one I have is for different gauge wire: 22-16

    Can't figure out how to open the jaws - please help. Thanks.

    not sure about that model, but we have a pair that you have to squeeze the handle fully to release the jaws.
    This ensures a full crimp, but can cause problems at times as well......
