Slightly odd post, but just wanted to say, after years of using bootlace ferrules for screw terminals, as we all should, by crushing them with channel locks, I finally caved and bought the proper cylinder smusher tool and I must say I'm a big fan. These joins are way nicer than I was getting before. Would recommend.

Rofl ... and yes.
Although there a couple of different types of crimpers, for all but the smallest terminals I prefer the flatter type, more D shaped. However that makes then too wide for the smallest terminals so I have another that makes almost an hexagon, but feel they're less reusable after tightening down once.

They are also useful for crimping the ends of bike brake cables so they don't unravel. Of course you do it after passing them through the bowden tube.
