I can rent a Nicopress crimper locally from the same place I can buy
the swages from. Make some phone calls and then you can do it yourself
BTW, if the cables are the same breaking strength - install the
stainless steel aircraft cable. It won't rust! Just make sure the swage
fittings are compatible (they probably are).
