Default CRIMPING RIVETS FOR REBOUND STRAPS

Does anyone have information for the company or person that rents the tool which is used to crimp the rivets for the rebound straps. I have seen a zillion ads in the past for renting this tool but now that I need to rent it, I can't locate anything at all.

It has a strange name, "the weasel", "the wombat", or something like that. I'm haviing a brain cramp. Didn't know you could rent it. Thought you had to buy it. Chuck

It was called the Mongoose, and I'm gonna be needing it too. My 59's coming off the frame this winter and the 60 could probably stand to have the straps done too. I hope somebody posts it here if they find the source.

Tom,
I built a Mongoose several years ago, and you are welcome to borrow it. Drop me an Email with your address and I will send it to you.
Regards, John McGraw
