Let me know if you find any metal line equalizer thingamabobs.

I had 2, and then in a fit of friendliness, gave one away.  ::)

I have one, but in 15 years of ownership I've never used it.  :) 

I suppose you could say I'm Generation APA.  ;D

You don't need that tool.

Just have a friend hold the APA fitting firmly.

Then run at him with the spar aiming at the APA fitting carefully.

Don't forget to twist at impact.  ::)
