Nope, not the same - an alternative.

If you read the description they say they can machine a 3-eared tool, too.

I think they only deal through eBay so you'll need to ask them to put one up.

You can contact the guy direct at: [email protected] - his name is Lionel.

I received mine and it's a nice bit of kit. Just need a 38mm socket now.

Yep I have both types from Lionel having lent him the spinners to make the tools from, both nicely made & work well & a very good price! He's been making them for Jag's for years & found him on a Jag forum, he was only too happy to help :)

That is the recommended figure.

Have a look at the extract from the Driver's Handbook.
