Dear All
Just received my " wheel widget" from Lionel ( what a nice bloke ) and am impressed...so set to work to complete the tool ( and weight save 1.6Kg ), what I had in my boot was a torque wrench and home-made spinner socket ( did the job a treat but boy was it heavy - a total of just over 3Kg )
Cut down a box spanner I had lying around and turned down a surplus socket to provide a made to measure 1/2" drive 1 1/2" socket, also took apart an old torque wrench and " grafted" the business end onto a length of thick walled ali.pipe...
