the !/2 and 3/4 combination crimper from Home Depot and a cutter will probably do most of what you need. Throw in some some Sharkbite or Gatorbite push on fittings and you can work wonders with it.

 

P.S.- I am not a plumber either!

Sharkbite?!?!

Temporary repairs/mock ups and exposed fittings are the ONLY situations where these should even be remotely considered. Even then, I avoid at any cost.

I have a few in the house, the first of which has been on a piece of PVC for 15 years or so. it was undone 2-3 times until the length of the pipe was perfect. I like the ones with a 1/4 turn cutoff valve for use on any of the bathroom and kitchen fixtures. Nowhere near as cheap as a soldered connection, but no fear of setting a vanity or cabinet on fire accidentally.
