Default Wire rope ferrule swage

Does anybody have a swaging tool for wire rope ferrules? Or know where to get ferrules swaged on locally?

Also, is there a local source for the thimbles, ferrules, and clips? Too big for Home Depot, Grainger has some but not all locally and it's not really browse-friendly. 5/16" winch cable. Thanks

I have the tools. Lowes had some of the larger sizes thimbles, ferrules, and clips when I redid the winch cable on the 40. Some airplanes use cables to control the flaps so a lot of the tools and supplies can be found in that industry as well.

1/8" 5/32" 3/16" 1/4"
I have the smaller sizes too but I missplaced that one at the moment. I think it is in the garage somewhere

Thanks Mike, but 1/4" is just a bit too small. Do you have 5/16"?

So was your FJ40 cable 1/4"? Is this a PTO winch cable or the 8274 on your '78?

Have you tried these guys? http://www.denverwirerope.com/

I have a similar tool to Mike, but bigger crimps are probably better made by a large machine or the long handled crimper if you have that option. Getting the full crimp on the bolt style is PITA and I wondered if I was actually getting it on safely, and I actually killed the threads on one location trying to get it crimp all the way.

Edit: I don't recall where you live, but I have a rigging company I use for a lot of work projects. Really, really nice guys and I'm sure they would be willing to make a couple crimps for you. They are up in Ft. Collins though. LMK if you want contact info.

I haven't, just saw a thread on colorado4x4.org that said somewhere between $40 and $50 they can inspect, cut damaged cable, and swage thimbles onto the ends of good sections of cable. Might be an option.

I live in SW Littleton, so a trip to the Fort would be the better part of a day for me.

Matt, I am just a few minutes outside the Fort and happy to help! Let me know if I can pick anything up for you. I am sure we can align schedules enough to meet up somewhere.

Those guys are coming down to the springs next Monday and Tuesday. Let me ask if they can bring a crimper down that I can borrow.
