The 3/64″ elevator trim cables in the Glasair are secured with two NicoPress sleeves (P/N 450-0002-015) per end. Stoddard-Hamilton supplies these sleeves because they’re difficult to find. These sleeves require a special crimping tool, which is not available from the normal aircraft supply houses. This crimping tool is much smaller and more manageable then the normal, “big NicoPress tool from hell.”
If you’d prefer to purchase this crimper, an equivalent tool is available from B&J Industrial Supply in Seattle, (206) 762-4430. Ask for P/N 33V-CGB4; the price is $95.80. This tool will crimp 3/64″, 1/16″ and 3/32″ cable.
