When I went to have my "new" tailwheel cables assembled, I was having a problem finding a place on the airport to have the fittings swaged (sp?) and found a local rigger (by San Diego Bay) that had the hydraulic press to to "squeeze the fittings." He also carried MS/AN fittings and cable. The same SS cable I bought from Spruce, for the same price. I guess ships use the same spec. Cable (sailboats). Could have saved the shipping from Spruce. BTW...he only charged me $5.00 to swage (4) fittings ! Now that's a deal !
