      Comments about Hand Swaging Tools:

      The large plier type tools are very expensive and this tool does the job as well. In the "Pros" section I said it is easy to used and it is as far as the actual process, but it does take a lot of muscle on the wrench to complete the swage. I did over 100 swages with the tool and was concerned the threads might strip (hint: use a little lubricant) but they held up well.

        Been using the smaller style for years. Works every time. Somehow I have mislayed it, so I'm ordering another one today. Can't go wrong.
