Nicopress Tool

Above, an interesting tool I picked up recently.

"Nicopress" is a trademark of The National Telephone Supply Company, established in Cleveland,Ohio in 1901.  They came up with the idea of using swaged sleeves to connect wires, a technique which became very important in the cable-controlled aircraft parts of the era.  The company and its products are still a going concern.
