Just like a high-quality gearknob feels great in the hand and somehow enhances the art of the manual gearchange, this new – and lovely – Cherry wood had puck from Revive Auto Apothecary is a thing of beauty.

More than just a luxury item it makes the application of paste wax and polishes a cinch as it allows evenly distributed pressure meaning that coverage is consistent on a panel while it also reduces strain on fingers and wrists.

You can use it with Revive’s applicator although whisper this – and don’t tell them – but any Velcro-backed pad can be pressed into service.

I was extremely impressed at how much of a difference this item made.

Available now at £17.50 with a Beechwood version also available at the same price.
