Wire Locking Pliers

Wire Locking Pliers

This are great value wire locking pliers. All racers know that they're not allowed on a race track unless various fasteners on their bike are safety wire locked eg sump plug. If an engine spills it's fluids on a track it can be massively dangerous for everyone. Many folk that take part in track days should also wire lock fasteners on their bike. Tool is supplier with guide to wire locking.

"I know to my cost what can happen: The oil filler plug came lose on my R6 going around Castle Combe and the clutch threw an enormous amount of oil out which went all over my back wheel and could have caused me to crash! The bike won't go onto the track again until it has safety wirelocking fitted !" Ralph

Professional Wire Locking Pliers

Professional Wire Locking Pliers

• 150mm (6").
• For securing essential nut fixings.
• Easy to use.
• Incorporates standard pliers with the added benefit of twisting wire.
• Ideal for use in motorsport and classic cars. Wire available here.

Although primarily used in motor racing, using safety wire to secure components finds many applications in high performance and classic road cars also. Lock wire or safety wire is a type of positive locking device that prevents fasteners from loosening due to vibration as well as other forces. Safety wiring also serves as a visual indicator that the fasteners have been properly tightened.

Typically, the wire is threaded through a hole drilled into a fastener or part, then twisted and anchored onto a second fastener or part, then twisted again. It’s especially useful for critical areas such as suspension and brakes, but it’s also very useful for securing other components, such as keeping exhaust manifold bolts, or remote oil filter mounting bolts from becoming loose.

Damaged Cap Screw Extractor Set

Damaged Cap Screw Extractor Set

Cap screws or hex socket screws and bolts are fairly vulnerable to rounding out, partiularly stainless fasteners. Countersunk hex sockets screws and button heads are an absolute nightmare if they're over tightened, because the hex socket is fairlt small compared with the screw diameter. When we ere offered this product to test we were fairly sceptical, but we would not let the rep have back the sample once we had tried it! For a tool set that only costs a couple of pints of beer, it is amazing.

It uses standard 1/4" screwdriver bit drivers and covers 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm and 6mm heads.

Laser 4 Piece Stud Extractor Set

Laser 4 Piece Stud Extractor Set

4 Piece roller type stud extractor set. This type of stid extractor is usually our first port of call, because it is more gentle than the heavy duty extractor and less likely to mark the studs.

When you're trying to remove a waisted studs ie one where the plain section of the stud is smaller that the threaded, section it will not always grip the waisted section. If you use it on the threaded section it will probably destroy the threads. With such studs you can either try locking two nuts together or you will need to use the heavy duty extractor.

This set is suitable for 6mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm studs. The smaller sizes use a 3/8" drive driver and the larger two a 1/2" drive. All four can be used with a suitable sized spanner of socket also. Suitable for left and right hand threads

9 Piece Screw & Bolt Extractor Set

9 Piece Screw & Bolt Extractor Set

Good quality 9 piece metric screw, bolt and stud extractor kit. No one wants shear off bolts etc, but in the real world they do fail from time to time, for a number of reasons and if you can get them out yourself it's a major bonus.

Extracting screws and bolts, even with the best equipment, isn't child's play and requires a good degree of accuracy drilling the pilot holes. Using cheap 'easy outs' are a very bad idea indeed and the name is an oxymoron! They will invariably snap off and then you're really in the do do, with a visit to an engineer with a spark erosion machine where you will have a reasuringly high bill.

If you're going to extract sheared off threaded fasteners, ensure that you are very careful, particularly with the small sizes. Whilst these are excellent industrial quality, no tool is indestructable if you apply too much torque. Ensure that you drill the remains of the fastener dead centre with a good quality drill bit. It doesn't hurt to pilot drill the holes and open them up a tiny bit at a time. If it is a steel bolt in aluminum alloy heat the area up as much as is safe and use a pentrating oil such as ACF50.

5 inch / 130mm Curved Nose Forceps

5 inch / 130mm Curved Nose Forceps

These high quality medical forceps, manufactured from surgical stainless steel, are invaluable. We have had a good number of forceps in our tool cabinets for many years, but these are far and away the most useful. The small curved nose allows them to get in places straight ones can't and the curve also seems to give a better vision of where the article being gripped is going. They are an absolute must for replacing valve collets! Fetchin out small non-magnetic parts that have been dropped is much easier with this tool.
