Answer: 
It's like a huge set of pliers... spread the two handles to open the jaws, place your cable with its ferrule in the correct place between the cut-out for that size ferrule, then hold it all in place while your squeeeeze the handles together.

Yes, but the dies are unchamfered (sharp edges), so your ferrules will have sharp edges also. As an aircraft mechanic, I can attest that this tool is in NO way up to aircraft standards. Plan on using it for Home Depot kind of projects: safetying the garage door springs, fence work, securing the lawn furniture from theft. On that level of work this tool is a great value.

Answer: 
Yes, it works on aluminum ferrules for 1/16" to 3/16" cable. Swaged aluminum ferrules may be weaker than the cable itself and are probably not recommended for aircraft or rigging use.

Answer: 
The Lehigh Swaging Tool clamps 1/16 in., 3/32 in., 1/8 in. and 3/16 in. This refers to the cable size and the ferrules are identified with the same measurement. So use it on 1/16", 3/32", 1/8", and 3/16" cable and ferrules.

Answer: 
I use 1/8" stainless steel wire for my boat railings and radar mast shrouds and swage it with copper sleeves. That is usual practice. Just avoid doing it with aluminum sleeves.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Deal This Swaging Tool took about 4 crimps to break in works perfect nice crimp I can see this lasting a long time, pass my life. May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works just fine....and at $20 it's a great value! This tool is much faster than other cheap swagers that require wrenching two nuts shut to create tension. The reviewers that say it won't fit standard ferrules are mistaken (see photos below), it's just that this tool needs to be opened nearly 180 degrees before the ferrules fit in. I closed it with one handle on the ground and my (padded) knee pressing into the center to begin the close. Once the tool was tight on the ferrule I used two hands on the handles to finish the swage. It IS a little stiff to operate, and oiling the joints didn't improve that. The dies have sharp edges (unchamfered), so too will your ferrules after you use it on them. But an American-made version with chamfered dies costs about $360, so this is still a good value. This will do all your around-the-house swaging for a lifetime. I'd buy it again. See photos below to see how far open the handles must be and to see that indeed the ferrules fit the die. November 6, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't work for me I was using the 3/16" ferrule and this did not work at all. I got the ferrule to go in after opening the mouth almost 100% but after clamping down, all it did was put a scratch on my ferrule. I thought maybe I had a defective one but after returning 2, I decided to just use a hammer. March 27, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Decent Tool is standard China quality. Provides acceptable crimps with a bit of deburring with a dremel. Seems like it will hold up, only made 15 crimps so far. November 4, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It worked - with a trick I bought 3/32" aluminum ferrules from both big box stores. Neither seemed to fit in the tool. I tried grinding the ferrules and cursing at them. Finally I realized that giving them just a little pre-crimp along the wider side w/ a wire cutter worked. It actually made the process much easier as even with just minor pressure, the crimp would hold the wire and ferrule in place as I then got the tool in place to make the final crimp. My project (espalier trellis) flew after figuring this out. Hope it helps somebody out there. As others have noted, there are no directions with this thing (or the package of ferrules and stops). March 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Reliable tool for finishing work I bought this tool to help me put a good finishing touch on the ham radio antennas that I build. I was surprised to see that I could add good quality workmanship and function to my antennas for such a small price. This tool allows me to professionally finish my antennas and add resiliency to allow them to withstand harsh outdoor environments. April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Swaging Tool for Occasional Use I shopped extensively for this tool because I had a relatively simple project, needed to swage some cables and didn't want to pay a fortune. Home Depot had the best price. Bought the tool, used it and it worked perfectly. The handles are a bit short and the force required to close the jaws on larger ferrels is quite high. I used a piece of pipe slipped over the handles for leverage and that worked fine. March 3, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worthless. I bought this tool to crimp 1/16 double barrel ferrules. They don't even fit in the tool. Additionally, most other swaging tools have the 1/16 slot at the front of the jaws, not the back. This tool is terrible in design. Great price, but worthless. April 28, 2015
