okay, good info. That's way out of our price range. Especially considering the rarity with which I would use the tool. I can't justify that cost. Maybe I'll look around for some pre-grommeted webbing instead. There's also a few gear shops/seamstresses in town who *may* have a setter they'd let me borrow. Just brainstorming outloud.

My previous temporary fix was to cut the grommet from the old webbing and sew it as best I could to the replacement webbing, but a measuring error left me with a hip belt that wasn't long enough to attach, so I didn't really get to test out the strength of that sewing job, ha! Technically I did make contact, and we later discovered the sewing had ripped right out. hahaah! I give myself partial credit for trying.
