If you only have a handful of pins to crimp, I would not buy the crimper
tool.  It is possible but time consuming to use other hand tools or
solder.  I've done a few that way, and so it takes 5  minutes to make one
connection, if you are only ever going to do four.   I do own watch type
crimpers for the kinds of terminals I use frequently
