This is a hand swage gauge to check the quality of cable (wire rope) swaged hand swages or sleeves. It measures the resultant crimped ferrule and works for cable stops, oval, and duplex (figure 8) swages. The gauge is used to verify the crimp is less than the maximum after-swage diameter.
The Hand Swage Gauge is what you need to ensure that your Ferrules (Crimps) are properly swaged – its actually a technical process – you don’t just hit them with a hammer, throw them in a vice, or squish then with locking pliers
