A conventional PowerPack traditionally contains a standard lead acid battery, which makes the units big and heavy. However, new technology is being harnessed to provide smaller, yet equally powerful units.

Ring’s new RPP900 Lithium ion PowerPack is capable of jump-starting cars and light commercial vehicles, with the advantage of being compact in size and lightweight.

Suitable for vehicles with a petrol engine size up to 2-litre, Ring’s hand-held Lithium PowerPack provides a source of power for emergency starts or breakdown assistance. Its high power 2.1A USB socket means it with also recharge mobile phones, tablet devices and other portable electronic devices.

We’ve been using Gibbs® Brand maintenance spray in the totalkitcar/tkc mag workshop for several years now and it really is a superb product that really does what it says on the label.

Created back in 1969 in America, by engineer, Paul Gibbs, his eponymous spray is a penetrant that has a multitude of uses for automotive, marine, motorcycle and around the house. It is more expensive than some others but it does a lot more, and does them effectively, too.

Another thing that sets it apart from most competitors is that it doesn’t contain any nasty chemicals and it is also the first More >

Oh, in case you were wondering, the beautifully sunny photos of a happy chap in said t-shirt looning about on a beach, was taken this week. It might surprise you to know that it wasn’t Skegness, or indeed Aylesbury,  though, rather than somewhere in gloriously warm and sumptuously sunny, More >


Burton Power is now stocking the Gold Plug magnetic sump drain plugs from America. These top quality plugs are constructed from a .303 stainless steel body that houses the strongest, highest temperature, N45SH Neodymium magnet available.

The strong Neodymium magnet collects any ferrous swarf or wear particles missed by the oil filter, which are abrasive and potentially lethal to the engine. The magnet More >

Straighten coils of brake pipe quickly and easily with the new Laser Tools tube straightener, part no 5968. Apparently, it can help make your hand-fabricated brake pipes look like factory replacements. Plus it’s important that any tube-bending operation begins with a straight tube. This will match the exact bends of the original without dealing with twists in the new pipe.

The tool can be mounted in a vice or permanently mounted to a bench. Using a simple five-wheel straightening method it works on any thin wall annealed brake pipe or tubing from 3/16in to ½in (4.75mm – 12.7mm), usually copper or More >
