They're pretty spenny
Of course they are, theyre pretty much the best pliers you'll buy.
Even more expensive for you as you live on chips and gravy :D

Jokes aside, check out some of the snap on / tools pages on facebook. Always seeing decent circlip pliers come up on there for sensible money. The cheap ones are cheap for a reason, theyre usually crap. Shame youre not local, else id just loan you mine.

edit, just found a set here that are pretty well priced and should do all youll want from them.

I was looking for some circlip pliers at the same time as Louis as I don't have a set which is annoying!

Went for these in the end last night after much deliberation. I'll take some pics when they arrive for quality purposes

I’ve got a set of Beta Circlip pliers which are nice quality. They came in a deep foam moulded tray too which looks really fancy. About £80 the set (internal & external with straight and bent in each)

But you can get a set of 4 Knipex for £65 from FFX tools (which you May have nearby)

A good vice is worth its weight in gold. 😍👌🏼
Always had to take stuff to work. This will make things a thousand times easier now!

Just saw your circlip plier reply. Not sure what to do yet, I rarely use circlip pliers but when I do I want a decent set 😂

Knipex are expensive but are imo the best you’ll buy and always sell for good money too.
Teng do reasonable kit that would also be worth a look. Any idea what you’re prepared to spend?

There's a decent brand of circlip pliers which I can't remember the name of, but basically they are a 2in1 action so that you flip the lever and they go from an opening style to a closing style.

Might be worth a search, saves you buying two pairs.

I’d be interested to see if they’re any good. I’ve never seen a decent pair of those multi purpose pliers as they all seem to collapse when you put them under load imo.
The flip over bit is also cumbersome on all the ones I’ve seen. Would be cool to see a decent pair if there is such a thing.

Snap on do them, mate has them but I’m not a fan of them

1/4 beam torque wrench from America (posted quicker than hermes) Hacked up a socket so can now measure torque required to turn steering rack.
Its a good job I didnt go with a 3/8s one because I just tried to turn the new oem rack I have and it was just about 1nm :ROFLMAO: I was expecting it to be a bit more than that, I have a reference point now anyway.
