    Don't have a pic, but I picked up a Shimano hydro disc hose cutter/barb inserter tool from Black Friday (week) sales

    Now I can finish the new FN CX disc AFTER CX season ended.

    We're cycling in a warmer clime post-Xmas, so I am thinking about ordering some of the Wolf Tooth ultralight pack tools. Need to mod a rental bike gear-wise for my wife, and the rental co. lacks the wannadoit. I have the Abbey Works tools for home use, but the travel weight things are fetching. Already have the WT Masterlink Pliers. So I'm thinkin'.

    I like the crombie more than the wolf tooth. The finger slots dig into my palm when I use it

    Cool Re: New Tool Tuesday..show some pics

    Well, it isnít Tuesday, but it is the new year. Happy new year everyone and happy new toy, er, tool day to me! Much thanks goes out to the Friar for this new Knipex gem, the 95 61 150. It will be a welcome addition to my expanding Knipex toolset, and adding more prestige to a box I may not be worth of.

    Sometimes Monday feels like a Tuesday. New flush cutters for zip ties. These have a little gripper in the jaw for pulling the tie tight before you clip it.

    I've always just used fingernail clippers

    YRMV and that's a neat bit of kit.

    Flush cutters matter. And that little gripper looks neat!

    This isn't a new tool (although I bought the 2.5mm a month ago which was 6? years after the 2 and 3mm)



    wera kraftform 2, 2.5, and 3mm drivers with coloured sleeves

    the 2mm is perfect for all current (91XX series) shimano derailleurs, and the 3mm is great for SRAM stuff. We often talk about how useful JIS drivers are, and these are the perfect compliment for modern drivetrains.

    Rich asked about them, specifically the heatshrink. I do this for two reasons. First, after using the PB Swiss keys for years, I get really frustrated not being able to instantly tell the difference between various tools. Secondly (but not as important on the set above) the heatshrink protects the anodizing on different parts. These drivers don't need that much, but on the long 5mm I use for brake bolts, heatshrinking the shaft helps to stop from scratching the bodies of the brake caliper, which can get pretty tight especially on post mount models.

    I should really contribute more to this thread as there is a ton of weird stuff I've sought out over the years

    is the 2 'head' long enough to reach the support bolt on Shimano FDs? that's been the only deal killer for me in seeking out a nice 2mm driver. in the end, I've ended up with Unior P-handles instead of 2 different drivers for Shimano derailleurs. i do, however, carry a 1.5mm driver for Sworks cranks. That thing is unbelievably handy.

    Easily. Shaft is about 65mm plus the hex head

    it's not the length of the shaft so much as it is the girth.

    I've found with Pedro's, USAG, various other drivers/ t-handles/ p-handles, that if the shaft is too large, it'll keep the head from actually reaching the support bolt. The shaft ends up bottoming out on...something. Such an annoying occurrence. Same thing happens with the mounting bolt on Campy rear derailleurs, and Sworks cranks that use the 6mm center bolt.

    I know what you mean

    Iíll grab a photo later. Iíve been using the 2mm daily for over a year (or whenever the new front derailleurs became commonplace)

    Itís also a funny angle you have to shove the driver past the cage, but Iím sure you know that

    Edit: I think I know what you mean. The hex plus head is pretty deep and I have no issue getting enough purchase from it
