We primarily used this machine to assemble aircraft control cables

This lightly used swagging machine has served us well over the years.  We have scrupulously maintained it during that time.  The machine is currently in storage.  Although there is some dust accumulated on the surfaces, there is no corrosion evident or visible.

When the City of Edmonton closed the downtown airport about 5 years ago we were forced to move to a smaller shop.  The unit was placed in storage at our new smaller location, but due to space restriction, we never set it up after the move.  We have now decided to sell the complete kit.

Also available is about 250 individual MS and AN aircraft cable terminal ends which are in our current inventory; a $1,000.00 plus value.

Also used for Marine Cables

Over the years we also assembled many marine, sailboat cables.  Most of the cables terminal ends used in the rigging on sailboats can be readily swaged with this machine.

The weight of the complete kit is about 425 lbs, so truck transport or local pick-up are the only freight options.

    1. Good Morning,
      As you may know, the new replacement cost of this swagger kit is about $15,000 US Dollars. This unit we are offering for sale, although used, is in very good condition with little use. It is free of corrosion as well.
      We are asking $9,950.00 Canadian Dollars. This asking price converts to about $7,500 US Dollars. As you can see this is 50% of the new replacement cost.
      If you are interested you can contact us at email tools@sas-canada.com
      Regards

      Separately we have a cable proof loader, capable of proof testing swaged cables up to 3/8″ in diameter. It will accommodate both left and right hand threads as well a “ball end” terminals. The design allows testing of cables of more than 50 feet in length. We are asking $4,900.00 Canadian Dollars for this proof loading system. This converts to about $3,700 US Dollars.
      If you are interested you can contact us at email tools@sas-canada.com we can supply additional details and photos of the swagger and proof tester.
      Regards
