Safety Wire Pliers

You cannot be a racer without these. Store in the top of your tool box for all to see. Learn to do elegant and functional safety wiring jobs. Men will envy you - women will seek you out! Five models available:

Milbar PliersJawsIntroducing Milbar's Deluxe "Tigerwave" Twisters.
All the bells and whistles:
(1)
Tigerwave jaw grip features a meshing smooth wave grip pattern to replace the traditional serrated grip which can nick and scratch the wire and cause subsequent breakage (usually just as you do the final twist on a complicated and remote wire job).
(2) Cushion throat secures the clipped wire ends so they do not fly off into the nether regions of the shop, fuselage, chassis,Tigerwave Twists etc. to get into tires, fuel cells, electrical units and shoe soles and otherwise cause what airplane guys call FOD (Foreign Object Damage). Saves a lot of time looking for the ends and riding herd over neophytes letting them scatter.
(3)
Auto spring return of the pull shaft. A great convenience in restricted access situations. (Look, Ma, one hand.)
(4)
Reversible twist rotation allows right and left handed twists. Experienced wirers will already know that the second twist really needs to be in the opposite direction to the first for the best functioning (and looking) wire job.

These are the very best wire twisters money can buy. Available in both the traditional 9" size and the more ergonomic 6" version.

It has a fat handle for better grip and leverage. Much cheaper than the Snap-On version.

Bonney Wrench

Bonney Wrenches

"Bonney" Service Wrenches are the erstwhile AN fitting wrench, popular for years in the aircraft and racing industry. Always hard to find, these wrenches are a badge of honor among race mechanics. Real Bonney men look down their noses at those clunky CNC'd aluminum copies now sold by AN plumbing houses. And for good reason. Service wrenches are slimmer and more ergonomically shaped than the aluminum copies and, being steel, can be physically smaller - thus ideally suited for the tight confines of the race car.
As we run out of the original Bonney wrenches we are substituting the Martin or Wright Service wrenches which are an exact replacement.
Part numbers correspond to Bonney's number stamped on the wrench handle. The last two numbers represent the wrench's size in 32nds, example: Our P/N 000T 1224 = Bonney 1224 or 24/32 or 3/4"
True Bonneys are limited to stock on hand.

Calipers

6" Dial Calipers

Cheap Asian calipers for knocking around the shop. At this price you won't mind so much when your brother-in-law drops them after his third beer. Actually quite accurate. Everybody should have a set in his tool box, if for no other reason to be able to order parts right. All too many parts orders start with, "I need a screw." "What size?" "Ah, a little bigger than the one I got." "What diameter is that?" "Ah, lemme see. Ah, yah... it's one little mark less than a quarter inch." "Do you mean 3/16ths or 7/32nds?" "I donno - will it fit my hole I've drilled out?"

Snap Ring Pliers

You will eventually tire, as we did, of trying to make those stupid, universal, changeable-tip snap ring pliers work. Either too big, too small, too wide, or too narrow, and always too flexible. To end this frustration, we offer the following dedicated snap ring pliers:

One Man Brake Bleeder

No need to pay an extra helper or get into an argument with the wife just to bleed the brakes. No steel parts to rust. Uses minimal amount of fluid, reducing exposure to atmospheric moisture. Easy to clean. Light and compact to fit in your racing kit or a small space in your garage. Basic unit comes with screw-on adaptor that fits Girling master cylinders (among others).
