Some Rigging Hardware

I am in the process of making some boom vangs and and boom outhaul hardware.

To do this I need a cable cutter and crimper to first cut the stainless steel wire and then to secure the wire with a crimp.  The crimp has to be pressed shut onto the wire so that it cannot pull out.  The crimper tool does this by setting the crimp on the wire in the appropriate hole and pulling the lever down, pressing the crimp.
