    Customer service with supplier!Customer service with Plumbing Planet, making sure I received the product was fantastic, and I really appreciate their efforts.

  2. Robert M

    Great tool for HVAC/RThough costly this is a great tool to have. I have used an imperial swage kit for 30 years. I bought this and I can say I wish they would have been made 30 years ago. Easy to use. Works in tight areas. No hammering no spinning a handle.

  3. Edward

    Buy it!I was contemplating buying a knock off from all the reviews I have seen of splitting. I have had no issues just turning it , what I mean is. I do around 10 pumps stop deflate it, turn it. The. Give like 15 pumps. I love this

    learn the technique to avoid split tubingEdit: This tool has a cheat technique available for 3/8 and 5/16 or even 1/4…swage your fitting halfway or so, then release the expander head to normally closed, then rotate entire tool 1/8 or 1/4 turn and finish your swage. This rotate technique has been most useful to avoid splitting 3/8, 5/16, and even 1/4! This tool earns 5 stars honestly, and has saved my butt on more than one compressor install, especially in tight spaces like reach in coolers/freezers. Being able to control which end to braze is also a huge plus.Original review: Splits 3/8 copper almost every time, even with a light inside ream and no chamfer. Leaves a slight octagonal/hexagonal inside impression on the tubing no matter what size attachment…and no, I don’t crank hard on the handle. Everything else works well, although I use the 7/8, 3/4 and 5/8 attachments almost exclusively. Finally gave up on the 3/8 attachment today, it’s easier to just grab a coupler. This is a rugged and well made tool, and comes with the price tag to match. Is it worth the money? I suppose it would pay itself off after a few hundred installs. We’ll see if it lasts that long.Cost wise, it’s expensive. If I were an installer all day every day, I’m sure I would be saving time with this tool around. Ironically, if I were an installer, I wouldn’t spare the beer money to buy this thing.
