What tools are we all using to build your HevORT? Crimpers etc?

You do need crimpers, Drill, Allen wrenches. wire clippers, wire strippers and 3D printer.
Oh.. you may also need some alcohol of your choice :)

Got all of that.. Other than crimpers.

Alcohol is of course mandatory.. I have whisky/beer/red wine depending on the mood.

Bought some Wheeler p-handle wrenches. They also have a 55-Piece screwdriver set.

To crimp the various terminals included with the Duet3 I have used an Engineer PA21. I'm very impressed with this tool and would certainly recommend it over cheaper options.
For the insulated fork terminals on the mains side of my printer I used a basic tool but i'm not particularly satisfied with the results.

You will want a selection of clamps to ensure the frame is assembled square. I suggest some strong corner clamps and a few F clamps at a minimum. I think it might be useful to have a couple of long F-clamps to take the full width of the printer but I managed without.

A M5-0.80 or a M6-1.00 tap for the bed extrusion. Borrowed a tap and die set from my brother, but should buy a set for myself.

Got this drill set from Harbor Freight. Good enough for plastic and aluminum.

A good chop saw. The mini’s don’t work well for 5mm tubing. Haven’t tried the Proxxon. Other choices are a 71/4” (184mm) or a 10” (254mm) saw such as from Dewalt. Get a blade for cutting steel. Wear eye protection.
