Cable splicing is much easier if the cable is cut clean without frayed ends. We highly recommend C7, C9, C12 or C16 cable cutters.
TO INSERT A DIE IN THE TOP OF THE HEAD. Push the die release button and place one die of the set in the top of the head, center it and release the button. INSERT THE OTHER DIE IN THE BOTTOM OF THE HEAD. Depress the die release pin and place the other die of the set in the bottom of the head and release the pin. The die will be held by the retainer pin. If it is difficult to depress the die release pin, pump the handle several times, this will expose the pin.
THE HEAD OF THE COMPRESSOR WILL ROTATE 180 DEGREES. The head can be rotated to any desired position to accommodate operator’s view of the dies, fitting position and operation.
CAUTION Do not rotate the head under hydraulic pressure
OPERATE THE PUMP HANDLE until the dies are closed. If the dies are not clearly visible, the pumping should continue until a sound from bypass valve is heard. First Stage, the pumping sound will accompany a reduction in the force required to close the pump handle. After first stage has bypassed, pump 5 to 6 more times until it hits the second stage bypass. If the dies fail to close, it will be due to:
a) the tool being used for some application for which it was not designed.
b) the pressure not building up to 700kgs/cm (10,000 psi)
c) the wrong dies being used for the incorrect size sleeve.
Properly Swaged Sleeve RELEASE PRESSURE AFTER OPERATION. Release pressure by twisting pump handle clockwise while holding the handle in the open position, then move the handle into the closed position.
WARNING: Keep fingers clear from the dies and ram during operation.
Use the gauge that is provided to check the accuracy
* Stainless Steel requires the #0 tool
