That's crazy expensive isn't it!

For those who don't know about them, see this video from 1:47 onwards.

Useful for loosening crusty and rusty bolts where you can't get a blowtorch in. Even better for when there's a rubber boot near by like a track rod end.


Also good where you're in a place you don't really wanna be swinging a gas axe around.
Like laying under your car while it's on jack-stands.

£150 is really good, very interested.

Can't believe I've been using mole grips in my 12 years of doing car stuff. These are mint!

Made changing the brakes on my FIL's car so easy today.

It's currently in Nottingham so should be here soon!

Let us know how it goes, really quite interested.

I assume it'd work ok off an extension lead without blowing a fuse? Don't have exterior plug sockets or anything near my car.

Bringed this from aliexpress a few weeks ago in anticipation for some house work when we moved in (which evidently fell through) but can't wait to give it a go.

Massive savings compared to buying it in the UK. This was £130 delivered and even has Bluetooth to turn it on. I absolutely won't be using that feature. Nicely packaged though.

Obviously I looked at the milwaukee variebt but it was £600 ish for a nowhere near as decent product.

In all seriousness, check the calibration at a range of distances with a manual level or similar. I’ve seen two separate instances of cheap lasers being out in recent years with funny results.

P.s that coil thing is f**king mint. I don’t even need one and I want it.

Really didn’t need any more sockets but ordered these to go in the car, really smart idea making the other end square so you can get a spanner on it.
 

Coby.

Well that puts my Bosch Quigo to shame but even that has been amazing for getting photo frames etc in line.
 
The spanners aren't new but if you need to do something in a tight area then they pay for themselves almost instantly! I've never been a massive hand tool snob and these Neilsen ones are Bob on, proper chunky too. I think they were like £20 for 10-19mm

And this thing, spark plug repair kit. £40 and I can probably do about 20 repairs with the kit

Saved me buying a new head/engine. It looks exactly the same as the Sealey one which is more than triple that price!

Lads, I’m on the hunt for a metric combi spanner set, something half decent, any recommendations?

Looking at a Sealey set (6-22mm) and a Nielsen set (6-32mm) on eBay... £28.10 and £29.99 respectively.

What are peoples’ thoughts on Nielsen stuff, good or no?

Teng, their 10-19mm set can be had for about £35
or
Halfords advanced 8-19mm £28 with trade card

Only snag with the Halfords Advanced combi set is the range, only goes up to 19mm.

Ideally need a 21mm in there too.

Went for the Sealey Premier set in the end, 6mm through to 22mm, all for £28 delivered and a lifetime guarantee.

New tool day using the global shipping program on eBay again. Properly impressed with the quality and came out at around £120 with all taxes and shipping etc.

Every other kit I've seen the quality looks pretty s**t. Especially the amazon ones.

This allows a wheel bearing to be changed whilst the hub is in situ.
