What Is this tool

Recommended Posts

Suggest that this is a crimping tool to crimp copper lugs (termination with a flat plate with a hole in it to be held by a stud or bolt,) or joining sleeves, onto a wire or cable. The application is usually electrical. Modern ones usually have an articulated action that gives more mechanical advantage. (I have 44 years experience as a linesman/electrician). I agree that the tool category is "swage".
