    Question What's that?

    Shadan . . . I know about lots of tools but I can't imagine what you are talking about. What does a "ball crimp tool" do?

    I had one of those once.

    Divorced her over 25 years ago.

    Somebody had to say it.

    You had the old fashioned tool

    25 years ago

    She probably ain't much to look at now
    but I bet she can still get the job done

    Should be able to get them from just about any appliance service parts vendor, APPCO in my area sells them.

    The set that's illustrated in my reply are from CPS [Custom Products and Services] http://www.custom-products.com or toll free at [888]444-1202.
    They're based in Minnesota.

    Not sure if they have non-pneumatics or not you can email them with questions at info@custom-products.com

    If you dont mind my asking what's wrong with typical pinch offs - space limitations?

    Either mine are tired or I over tightened them but it is hard for me the get a complete shut off.

    They will work for me if I get a wrench on them but to a point that I'm worried about slicing through

    I see the ball crimps from oem and it looks good but I bet it's pricey

    I don't think I could get an air compressor in my veto either

    At 2 HP, 13A, oil-free induction motor which delivers 2.6 CFM at 90 PSI with a maximum working pressure of 135 PSI with a 6 gallon tank for $149.00 on Amazon, you'd be surprised how much easier your life could be with one of these, and they don't require much dead space in the van either.

    Are you just looking for a simple handheld ball crimper (pinch-off) like the Refco 14285?
