Is this the same crimper you would use to make control cables?

ED---are you talking about cable, like rudder cables with swaged ends?
Something like the Kearney swager?

I wasn't sure how the ends were crimped on control cables. (rudder,aileron....)

So if one tool can do different things, the versatility of a cable crimper goes up.............

The ones I have seen were swaged on, maybe with a tool like the Kearney tool.
ACS can tell you for sure or the airframe shops with those experts----which I am certainly not.

Default You might borrow

A local electrical supply house may let you borrow or rent their crimper. I bought lugs for the larger wires from Anixter and borrowed their large crimper.
