You may want to consider Kevins idea and rent one since you will most likely not need one that much. If you decide to buy you can get both items at Aircraft Spruce. They have the strap duplicators in all 3 common sizes in both 6" and I believe 12".


I also noticed a less expensive model of the tensionmeter at the Wicks booth at one of the Zenith Open Hangar events.


Hope this helps,

Another option would be to build one from Larry McFarland's website Go to his Tools section then cable tools. I haven't built one yet but it looked like a good option.
