hilmor: Swage ToolThe Compact Swage is a lightweight, compact tool that weighs 2.2 pounds. It is operable with one hand. The pistol-shaped tool measures just over a foot long and 3.25-inches wide, providing technicians easy access to tight and awkward spaces, even when on a ladder. The swage is made of forged aluminum and features a hydraulic mechanism, reducing the manual effort normally required to expand tubes. The handle is spring-loaded and allows for controlling the amount of pressure placed on the tube to be swaged. The Compact Swage has the capacity to swage up to 1 5⁄8-inch tubing and the precision to swage as small as 5⁄16-inch tubing. Once the job is finished, there is a release button that allows for one-handed operation. The complete Compact Swage Kit includes 3⁄8-, ½-, 5⁄8-, ¾-, and 7⁄8-inch expander heads, deburrer, and swage.
