I'm addicted to DDR. I need a 12-step program.

Has anyone used one-step crimpers before?

From here:

How well do they work? Obviously you need to use crimping beads, but is there a specific size or brand they work best with?

I'd like to know before I run out and buy a pair. Thanks!

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

I haven't used one, but I wanted to mention that I use the "Magic Crimper" a lot.  It's AWESOME.   It turns a normal tube crimp into a pretty little ball that looks like it's one of your beads.  You have to use a specific size tube crimp for it, but I definitely think it's worth it.

I agree. I love the bead buddy which is a 1 step crimper. The link didn't work for me so I'm not sure if that's what you're referring to or not...
