They don't make them that small. For some of the links you can use standard pliers. Some have made pliers out of tweezers for the eolo.keepin' it real

Swash plate balls!
If you remember from several posts back I said that you'd have a very hard time getting the links over the swash plate balls, they are very tight. You have to really be careful or you'll break off the balls, and that's definately not good. I am using some very cheap ball link plyers I bought from Hobby Lobby, they work but you have to be careful or they can scratch the balls when you take off a link. The price is around $6.95 if I recall right, look through their online catalog and you'll find them.

P.S. Good luck, that's one reason I went with the metal upgraded swash, head, mixing arms, etc.

I built a custom ball-link reamer

got one of the brass balls, mounted it on a long bolt, held it tight with a nut and CA, then put a longitudinal cut on each side of the ball with a pair of wire cutters. Then spin this tool in the link to loosen it up

Thanks Guys
I cut myself a pair out of tweezers I've not tried them yet, but they seem like the tweezers will work perfect. They are the type of tweezers with wide ends. I don't think with my new ball link pliers I will have any problems putting the links on, but I am not sure if I have to take them off how I can do that. I hope once I have them on I will be good to go. I also used a reamer and machine oil on my ball links which so far has worked great and the parts are moving free. I also have a standard pair of ball link pliers and they do work on all the ball links so far except the swash as HeliDuce stated. Again Thanks for your help guys I am going to try and install the ball links to the swash this evening (Friday). Also I will add a photo on Monday so you guys can take a look on how far I am along with the build. Again Thanks...
