    That's a generic crimper, right? I have a pair of the Engineer crimpers, which will kinda do most crimps OK, but it's painful to do a lot of them, and the strain relief isn't always great. For any large quantity of pins, or for more reliable crimping, having a crimp from a tool that is designed exactly for the pin is hugely important. Unfortunately, those crimpers start at about $250 for some of the Molex series (Mini Fit Jr, etc) and can easily be $1100+ for a JST pin.

    Not a problem, it's a common misconception and that's why I pointed it out. There is a huge crowd out there that thinks rosserial is a replacement for everything, but it's not.
