The jaws feature an easy-open, in-line design. These jaws have been optimized for use with Milwaukee Press Tools to complete PEX installations in tight spaces.

The new jaws are compatible with F1807 and F2159 connections.

They will work with 1/2″ – 1-1/2″ for the M12 Force Logic Press Tool and 1/2″ – 2″ sizes for the Force Logic Press Tools.

The new PEX Crimp Jaws will be available at Milwaukee distributors beginning in February of 2020.

A Little More Context

For years, you’ve been able to use M12 and M18 Force Logic press tools for copper, black iron, and stainless steel. What the new jaws unlock is the ability to crimp PEX with the same tools. It adds to the versatility and value of owning a Milwaukee press tool, giving you another type of connection that you don’t need a dedicated tool or separate method for.

If you’re transitioning into PEX installs or new to the plumbing trade, F1807 and F2159 are ASTM standards that many manufacturers comply with to ensure the quality and consistency of their products.

F1807 covers PEX installs up to 2″ with brass fittings and copper crimp rings. F2159 ranges up to 1″ with poly inserts and copper crimp rings.

Milwaukee’s PEX crimp jaws include go/no-go gauge installers that you can use to verify your connection meets those standards.
