Any idea what the Tisco sleeves are made of? If they are steel with the rolled flanges like the old ones in the picture I would be very surprised if they broke unless abused - steel usually bending rather than breaking. However there have been reports here that the current crop of .040" sleeves are iron.
Either way I would want a proper fitting mandrel before I'd try to drive it in (either that or a tank of propane!) - there just isn't much meat on that flange to withstand casual pounding. Though where would one ever find such a tool today, let alone at a reasonable price?
