Crimping tool for half-shaft boots
Does anyone near Frederick-Mt Airy, MD have the crimping tool for booting?

Can I borrow it tomorrow?

I have one but for the life of me I can't find it. The last time I used it was 1.5 years ago and I've moved since then. I know it's short notice but I'm leaving town tomorrow night and will be gone until the weekend. I'd really like to get the subframe bits back in and the car on the ground before I leave.

Thanks in advance.

I have a ceramic tile nipper that I had forever that works great for crimping those bands.

Similar to this picture.
