MAGNETIC PERSONALITY

This super-flexible magnetic pick-up tool from Laser Tools (part number 7026) has a useful 300 mm length but features a very narrow shaft diameter of just 4mm, which makes it ideal for retrieving those metal nuts, bolts, screws and other metal pieces that have found their way into areas otherwise inaccessible.

If you’ve had to drill out a seized glow plug, this pick-up tool is narrow enough to be inserted into the glow-plug aperture to retrieve any metal swarf or broken glow-plug debris.

The soft grip handle provides comfort and control over the movement of the pick-up tool. The flexible shaft can More >

IT’S A WRENCH FOR SEALEY

Sealey’s NEW CP2612 and CP2634 Hand Wrenches are powerful, compact and suitable for removing the most stubborn wheel nuts in the workshop or on the roadside with no compressor or mains source required.

KEEPING IT COOL

Thermo-Tec’s customisable Acoustical and Heat Control Mats keep radiant heat and excessive noise to a minimum and can be trimmed to fit almost any space in your vehicle’s interior.

These 0.063in-thick mats block excess engine and road noise for a better driving experience. Each sheet contains polyethene film and a foil surface that will buffer radiant heat up to 2000 degrees F and direct temperatures up to 300 degrees F.

The high-temperature adhesive backing makes it easy to conform the mat to floorboards, firewalls, or doors,  just apply a heat gun and trim edges for a contoured, custom fit.

HEY! A SPYDER I’M NOT AFRAID OF – RESULT!

Great to see Spyders Inc taking a much more pro-active attitude to their excellent 718 RSK replica and the latest example, not only stars on the front cover of the May/June issue of TKC Mag, will be gracing our stand at Stoneleigh this weekend – Hall 1, stand 66.

Spyders Inc boss, Rob Lindsay has teamed up with ex-Renault F1 man, Craig Hurran and have gone full-time on the project, which is fully deserving of such attention as closer inspection of the powder blue example pictured here reveals.

BONDING. JAMES BOND(ING) – SORRY!

I’m a big fan of the products sold by E-Teck, a broad range of stuff that is absolutely ideal for kitcar enthusiasts, either on the car or around the home.

Take their MS55 Professional Adhesive & Car Body Seam Sealer. I’ve been using it on our RPX and Abster projects and also to seal a bit of plywood boxing-in I was doing in our kitchen!

A professional-grade adhesive that is high-strength and extremely flexible, meaning that is spot-on for when fitting a car body to a chassis. Strong enough to stick fast, but with enough flex to ensure it stays stuck.

PUT FLEX IN YOUR BOOM!

Boom Mat’s regular aluminium damping material has long been used to reduce vibration and noise while providing insulation to protect against extreme heat and cold.
