Hi Roger. The tool for "smushing" the Nicopress fittings is available at
Home Depot, as well as the fittings. The fittings were on display, but the
tool wasn't. I just found the fittings, and asked the fellow in the orange
smock, "Where do you hide the smusher for these things?". It was about
$65 if I recall. Also comes in handy for recabling crankup towers.
