DIY mechanics in the Midlands rejoice!
By: Ben Klemenzson
The Midlands' first DIY garage (rent space and tools by the hour) is now offering another great tool for DIY mechanics...
Ramp & Wrench (www.rampandwrench.co.uk), the Midlands' first car and bike DIY garage, has just designed, manufactured and launched a new tool, aimed at anyone who wants to service front upside-down forks.
Predominately for road-based machines, this USD fork spring compressor tool is robust, effective, and simple to use. Just undo the fork cap, compress the leg and load into the tool, where two threaded pins insert into the spacer below the fork cap. Simply wind down the threaded rod with either a ratchet or windy gun, and the damper rod nut is exposed, ready for removal.
Ramp & Wrench has also provided a handy hole, cut into the base of the tool, for draining fork oil in situ, making this tool a universal fork servicing tool, for the jobbing technician, or amateur, alike.
Made from 2mm Sheffield steel, black powder coat finish, and including stainless fittings, this USD fork spring compressor is now available, with an RRP of £80. Trade enquiries are always welcome!
