I still use the old hammer swedge. Haven't broken down and got one of those nice expensive swedges yet
Get a tubing expander, you won't regret it, you may actually kick yourself for not getting one sooner!
I'd wait another month or so and track down a Hilmor compact tubing expander when they become available. http://hilmor.com/products/compact-swage-tool
If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
