i just use a a pair of dikes to cut the wire, to crimp it, they do make a tool for that but a hammer works well too, or a vice clamp. make sure you use heat shrink tube or electrical tape to cover the end though to make it look nice. either way can really scar up the end.

I use a steak knife to cut wire, and strip, and I use locking birdsbeak plyers. Its the quickest way too me.

i tried stripping the 1/0 cable with my teeth and it was impossible. so i use an exacto knife to cut and a hammer to crimp it.
