Tip – SLEEVE COMPRESSION GAUGE FOR ‘AIRCRAFT CABLE’
It is imperative that you use the correct gauge that is supplied with the swagger. All Vanguard’s swaggers include a Go/No Go gauge so you can measure the swage correctly.
Sleeve Gauge will measure all oval or stop sleeves used on 1/32″, 3/64″, 1/16″, 3/32″, 1/8″, 5/32″, and 3/16″ cable.
When proper slot in gauge slips over the compressed area of the sleeve after swaging then swage is satisfactory.
Note: Each test gauge must be appropriate to the tool that was used in the swaging of the termination sleeve. Tools can produce crimps with a unique profile that may, or may not, exactly match the profile of terminations made with other tools having the same groove number.
Please make sure you are using the correct gauge that is paired with the tool profile.
