       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).
