Product Description

Swaging tools are used to put secure loops in the end of wire rope. Used for attaching signs and display samples as well as for marine, aircraft, theatrical & industrial rigging. Versatile, cable loop can be made any size and any length. Strong, when a cable is swaged properly it will hold the full rated strength. These Tools are manufactured of steel, using grade 8 bolts for strength and durability. The tools are pre-lubed for working ease. Swaging pressure is applied by tightening the bolt to bring the two halves of the tool together.

The seems to be well made.

Then you'll want to use a breaker bar and an impact socket to tighten down the bolts as it makes it so much easier.

Maybe the cheaper versions work as well but as my life might depend on the swage ----- it was a good investment.

So I was comparing this swaging tool with another similar tool on Amazon. Both look very much to be the same. However, this one is more expensive. Why? Well this one comes with grade 8 bolts to tighten down so they don't shear off. This one also is using standard gauge bolts (not metric) and is pre-lubed. I didn't want to fuss with changing the bolts out and lubing it.

First, you'll want to put the lower part of the tool into a vise. If you don't, it's going to be tought to hold the tool, cable and sleeve to tighten the bolts down. Then you'll want to use a breaker bar and an impact socket to tighten down the bolts as it makes it so much easier. I was able to swage 1/4" sleeves (3 times each) in about 10 minutes (pretty quick).

The real reason you are getting this tool instead of a full blown swaging hand tool is cost. Those large hand tools are hundreds of dollars....and not necessary unless you are doing a bunch of swaging...which I wasn't.

If you don't want to spend the big bucks on the pliers type version by various other manufacturer's, this is a very reasonable alternative that does the job very nicely, though it takes about 10 minutes to do each swag.

The seems to be well made. However it arrived late by three days. Not sure why we are paying for Amazon Prime. Also on the website this tool is advertised as 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 1/4" which is what we needed...1/4". When it arrived late the Amazon packaging label stated the same thing, the packaging sticker on the exterior pf plastic bag stated the same thing...However the instructions inside the plastic bag clearly state 1/8", 3/32" & 1/8" as well it is stamped right on the tool. Frustrating.
1/10/13: So after being contacted BBTools, Inc. after my first review, they encouraged me to return the incorrect tool and reorder as they really do have the 4 hole tool. I did and again Amazon got it wrong! So on the second go around BBTools, Inc. again contacted me to see if we received the correct tool. I let them know we did not get the correct tool. This time they told me to purchase the tool through Amazon, but make sure that BBTools, Inc. was the fulfillment was them. The tool cast a few bucks less and then paid for shipping...Which BBTools, Inc. was kind enough to overnight to me for no extra charge. The tool arrived and it was the correct, Plus it worked wonderfully for us! Not only was the tool what we wanted Quality, but the customer service from BBTools, Inc. was exceptional! Thank you BBTools, Inc. for really standing behind your product.

I am currently using this tool to make 1/4 steel cables. Works as advertised, really solid product. Half the price of most of the long-handled pincer-type (bolt-cutter-looking) swaging tools. If I were doing tons of cables on a daily basis, I would spring for the quicker and more expensive pincer-type units. This one takes a bit more time and effort, but certainly does a good job.

Ive used this on 3/16 inch aircraft cable and loved the way it performed. The tool is best used with a Dewalt 1/4 driver impact cordless driver to make the process faster and more effective. Beats the heck out of spending 200 bucks for the long handled swager tool
