1/16 in. x 1/8 in. Cable Swage-It Tool is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak 2 crimps and the threads stripped out. Not too impressive. Rubber handle split and fell off. Bolts are too small (8-1.25mm) and not hardened Tool body is not hardened. Would be okay for occasional use if it didn't fall apart. I rethreaded with 3/8-16, hoping for the best....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice tool for small jobs. Great tool for money. If you need to do a small job with only a few wire rope loops, this can save having to buy the large crimping tool, and does a better looking crimp too. Use a socket with a ratchet to speed up the process.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from okay for emergencies, better off getting a real swage tool little hard to use for multiple crimps,bolts broke
