Default Crimping Deustch DTS connectors

I have DT06-6S plug - along with correct pins & wedge lock.
I don't have a specific crimp tool for Deutsch connectors (only fitting
2 plugs) .. could a standard ratchet tool for insulated crimp
lugs/eyelets be used .... or anybody a better suggestion ...... not
sensible to buy to connect 4 pins.

I'd solder it for a one off. Though carefully to avoid solder outside
the hole.

In the end I just used the 'indent' crimp on a 'basic' draper 4in1
crimp tool. Concerned solder may prevent the end of plug sealing
properly if it 'migrated'

I'd have riisked it with a small narrow bit in a thermostatic solder
station iron - but I do see the risk of disaster in a fraction of a
second wiith a mm too much solder
