NEW FOURTEEN, ER, I MEAN TWO NEW SEVENS FROM CATERHAM CARS

Caterham® has reintroduced its heritage range following the launch of two new models: Super Seven 600 and Super Seven 2000.

Ahead of the brand’s 50th anniversary next year, the latest editions take inspiration from Caterham’s early ‘Super Sevens’ introduced in the 1970s and popularised through the 1980s; a classic, British, lightweight, two-seater sports car with the perfect blend of style and performance, yet re-imagined for the 21st century.

While these models may look similar, they offer two very different driving experiences.

Super Seven 2000.

Super Seven 600

DRILL AND TAP – ONE PASS

New in the Laser Tools range is this set of six combined drill-tap bits designed to drill and tap a hole in a single pass (part number 8405). Each bit has been manufactured from high-speed steel (HSS4241) and coated with a super-hard, ceramic titanium-nitride coating for edge retention and corrosion resistance.

The 1/4in hex drive drill-tap bits feature a drill section at the forward end of each bit that forms the perfect-sized tap hole in the material. The following tap section then cuts the threads. The bits include spiral flutes to clear the swarf created plus a deburring shoulder to ensure More >

The tub is very clever in using More >
