Wheel fitting guides - NOW A LIVE SIGNUP

I have some wheel fitting guide tools for sale similar in form and identical in function to those originally made by Miggit in this post:- http://www.disco3.co.uk/forum/topic121881.html

I do not have many posts on this forum, but if you check out my profile on disco3.co.uk, you will see that I am an established member over there.

IMPORTANT - this is a registration of interest only, not a commitment to purchase. I need to gauge if there is enough interest to make manufacturing a new batch feasible.

THIS IS NOW A LIVE SIGNUP - if your name is on the list at the top of this topic, I will assume that you wish to purchase a set. Should this not be the case, please unregister.

Basically, these hold the weight of the wheel and allow you to align it properly whilst you get the first nut on.

The way to use them is screw the longer pin on to the highest stud, and the shorter on on a lower one. It doesn't really matter, but I have found that if the longer rod is higher, it's slightly easier to use.

Next, hang the wheel on the long rod and rotate it around until the short rod lines up and push the wheel up to the hub.

It's then straightforward to fit three wheel nuts.

Remove the rods and fit the remaining wheel nuts, tighten them up and you're done.

The price is 25 delivered to the UK - other places at cost. This includes a donation to the forum.

I have enough interest to make a new batch. If you are signed up at the top of this topic, I will take it that you want to purchase a set. If this is not the case, please remove your name from the list.

I will leave this buy open until the 10th of June, at which point numbers will be finalised and ordered. At the moment I am not sure what the lead time will be, but I will not be asking for payment until I have them.

Thanks,

Mike

Just stuck my name on the list. This will save my back from getting pulled.

For anyone who changes their own wheels or has their butler do it and is swithering about buying a set I strongly recommend you just go for it, you won't be disappointed. Refitting a relatively heavy FFRR wheel really does become a doddle. Thumbs Up
