Wait till you you experience the anguish of a tap breaking deep inside the hole....

I had to extract a broken tap for the boy at work yesterday, he discovered its quite hard to tap an 8mm thread into a 4mm hole, not quite as amazing perhaps as the boy managing to get about 20 mm of the tap into the hole before he snapped that bad boy off :crazy: .

He was using Farm boy, model Armstrong powered by a healthy dose of "why has the tap stopped turning " .... no hammer required

Do any of them fit (nicely) the tiny eyed circlips in RS Charger dampers? I'm on the lookout for a set that will. But the noses on those don't look fine enough.

These ones? http://www.parktool.com/product/9mm-sna ... op%20Tools

I've got one set that fits the rings okay, but they're a big plier that belongs in my other tools. The chargers are a special enough application that I'll happily buy a dedicated set.

Rp2 works better, the tips on the rp1 bend to easily.

Canadian government said 12 months to issue Certificates of Citizenship 5 weeks ago. They tried to deliver them Wednesday and picked them up today!

Also once for all answers the question can they hold 3 different passports.

Also the Jagwire tools makes quick easy work of shortening hoses!!
