The cheap swaging tools are a couple pieces of steel bar with half a 
hole in each one where they mate and a couple bolts to pull them 
together.  I had one and made more use of it than I expected, until the 
bolts stripped, and after I replaced the bolts the holes eventually 
stripped out too...

Now I've got one of these and while the AWG gauge sizes on the dies are 
a joke it does work well if you eyeball the dies you need instead, and 
it'll crimp 6AWG and larger wire terminals/battery cables quite nicely 
as well as swaging wire-rope type sleeves.
