Anyone have any experience with the (very) inexpensive compound swage
tools listed on this page?
http://www.aircraft-tool.com/shop/search.aspx?qid=5257&PageNo=2
(If the link doesn't work, just go to the ATS page & search for 'swager'.)
Part numbers JPS14 & JPS24.

I need to make up new flying wires for the Twinstar I'm restoring. I
have no problem using less expensive tools when appropriate, but the
order of magnitude difference in price does make one wonder.

Thanks,

Charlie

  I used their P/N 3 cable swager.  Got mine from Aircraft Spruce, under $40. Worked great, especially in tight places.

to use the 53 dollar version...one needs a vice to hold it...not at all
easy to hold the handle and get the swage and cable and thimble in place....

I notice this one on Ebay....Herb

The one you picked out, above, will work just fine.

Good idea to grease up the bolts and washers to reduce as much drag on them as possible.

I've never had a problem using the el cheapo. They used to come as part of the parts kits from Kolb Acft.

Thanks for the replies. I've got access to the 'screw down' version, but
I'm looking at the 'squeezer' type (faster & easier to use in place, if
required). These:

http://www.aircraft-tool.com/shop/detail.aspx?PRODUCT_ID=JPS24

No joy on anyone using either of those?
