New online toolstore - for those difficult tools!


Thanks to fellow modeller Deano for helping to locate this excellent new online toolstore. Just the place for those difficult to locate tools and materials.

Unfortunately Round Tuits are on backorder at the moment but some of the other items might be of interest.

Enjoy.

leccy,

Thanks for a great source. I got a pair of the welding sandals. I'm tired of punching holes in my good sneakers when I drop an Xacto knife.

leccy,

Thanks for the link - some really good stuff there.

Do you happen to know if the Solar Powered Torch also has instructions in Braille?

Really COOOOL !!

The multi-tool seems to be very useful.

It reminds me an old TV serie (I think it was of the same Benny Hill's era) about a guy who traded with useless trash like this one.

Anyone remembers?

leccy,

Do you know if they also stock the 'Vauxhall Viva Welding Set'?

You know, the one that welds bodyfiller to rust....

..aaahh memories.

The first car we ever bought was a Mini - green one, registration EFT 944B, which meant it was an old girl when we bought it in 1980. It was nice and shiny though so, being green ourselves, we parted with the cash and drove away. One week later, whilst stationary at a traffic lights the Mini was rear-ended by a bin wagon. On getting it to the garage it turned out that practically the whole rear wheel arches and a not insubstantial part of the rear subframe was constructed of newspaper covered with Isopon P38 bodyfiller and liberally coated with Tetroseal to disguise the fact.

Happy days!

Hey guys - be a bit nicer about the Viva. In my evil youth I was the Project Engineer for Seat Belts on the 1970 Viva HC.

My VW uses metric sized nuts and bolts. I wonder if this toolstore can get a metric adjustable spanner?

Except for the seat belt anchorage bolts which are 7/16 - 20 UNF.
(I know becaues I used to be........................ Hello Tim !).

PS - My Pontiac Fiero is quite frustrating. It was designed at the time when GM was switching from imperial to metric. So anything on the engine is imperial, the rest is metric except the interior and some of the chassis which is Torx. So you need THREE tool kits to work on it.
