I picked up a husky professional 6-in-1 swaging tool to cut down on work time at the job site. When I'm connecting two pipes together instead of soldering two joints I will only have to solder one joint. This will save me time and money because I don't have to buy couplings anymore.
When I ordered it from Home Depot I received it and took it out of the box it's 5- 1/2 in long and 3/4 in.thick on one side and the other side tapers down to 3/16 in. It's made of a hardened steel metal that is long- lasting and it will expand pipes from 3/16 to 5/8 of an inch. This is the 6 Dimensions it will expand pipe to 3/16,1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 OD. I opened the tool to try it out for the first time on a piece of 1/2 copper pipe. I put the swaging tool into the pipe and put the other end on the floor and hit the swaging tool about five times. I was in shock how good it worked. I took another piece of 1/2 copper pipe and installed it into the pipe that I just swagged and it fits perfectly.
I have never used a swaging tool before this but I'm going to tell you it's very simple to use and when I'm doing pipework I will use this swaging tool on every job now. The only thing that bothered me about this tool was it should have had the pipe sizes laser-etched into the tool then this swaging tool would have been perfect. You can't go wrong by purchasing this tool because it has a lifetime warranty.
I had a lot of fun using this Husky swaging tool. 4 stars for Husky but put some size markings on the tool. I do recommend this tool to save time and money. And I was surprised how in expensive the tool is.
A swaging tool is a must in anyone's toolbox that works with metal. It's a staggered hole punch. It comes in sizes from 3/16" up to 5/8”. It's an enlarging tool used to open holes greater than their original diameter, and an alignment tool that allows you to line-up two holes that just won't let you put that bolt through. By staggered, I mean there are larger and larger diameters from the tip to the hammering end. You place the tip into the hole and hammer on the top of this tool until you either enlarge it one or two, maybe even three more sizes. A "must" have when that bolt just won't fit into the hole. I've got one, do you? If not, Home Depot does!

So this is your basic hand swaging tool 3/16 to 5/8 OD tubing. Main use is for joing simular size cooper tubing without couplings. Designed as such that you only need a hammer and this tool to make the coupling. Trying on some 1/2 inch pipe you will need a good solid surface for the end of the pipe to get some leverage with the hammer and swaging tool. If you have a pipe that maybe is ridgid mounted you might be able to get this going. We usually use a pipe clamp to hold the pipe while tapping the tool . The fit is very nice after making the coupler and soliders very well. The end has a hex shape for a wrench if your not able to remove after tapping it. Hint dont side tap to loosen if stuck as it will make an oval fitting that might not soilder well. All in all work well. Works very easy on softer tubing.

This is the perfect tool for joining together the same sized copper tubing without using a coupling. I have not used this with low temperature solder such as sweating hard copper but for silver solder and HVAC work it is perfect.
The tool is solid and sturdy. Since you are using it on soft copper I don't forsee any issues.
Be sure to clean all the parts well before soldering and use plenty of flux. This type of joint has little physical strength other than the solder.
It works much better when the pipe is annealed (softened)...
It works much better when the pipe is annealed (softened) by heating the end of the pipe with a torch until it is red, and then either air cooled or quenched in water. One advantage of cooling it in water is that the majority of the black oxidation comes off in the water.
