It is a simple hand operated tool, one hand on the tool and the other on the bamboo below the female ferrule. Turning the rod (radial screws slightly tightened) works down the diameter of the female ferrule. Stay a little back from the welt and from the moisture plug. Twist several times, remove and test the fit. If still loose, repeat with slightly tighter screws.

The two radial screws will have to be a bit more than finger tight in order to achieve a shrink. They are #10-32 size, and require a 5/32 inch Allen wrench (not included).

You will probably need the skill of abrading a male ferrule to final fit, as it is easy to shrink the female a little too much.

As of January 2020, I have several in stock.
