    Fair enough, just a lot of tapping done or to do then.
    then.

  • GuyW17 October 2019

    With the plus point that they will still work well enough as water pump pliers as well!

    3-99 for a special tool that one would only use once or twice in a blue moon seems about right to me.

  • GuyW17 October 2019

    Searching around, I found some as cheap as 16 that look the same, but wondered if they were Putty Pliers and would bend at first use.

    But Screwfix sell a cheap pair of small water pump pliers at just 3.99 and 20 seconds with a slitting disk in the angle grinder and I have a nice set of bullet insertion pliers!

  • GuyW17 October 2019

    Here's an idea to save a few pennies.
    One can buy a natty little "special tool" for inserting electrical bullets into their connectors. A bit fancy perhaps but they do ensure that the connections are well seated. I was going to buy a pair but at 24 (Amazon price) that seemed a bit of an extravagance to me, being tight fisted as I am.

    Nigel, this is a new build into a heritage shell, so pretty much all new electricals.

    Paul, yes clamping? Not figured that one out yet in the plastic box!! Maybe just a couple of massive tie wraps all the way through!

    LaVerne, if it's a minimum order issue I'd be happy to pay my dues and get a badge to put on the front of my Focus. Bud

  • L E D LaVerne17 October 2019



    I am sorry to report that the badge project has been cancelled. As such I will be returning your checks or cash early next week. Those of you who might be gracious enough to save me a stamp and an envelope and allow me to simply shred the check, please send me an email indicating that is acceptable. Otherwise it will be returned to you. Again my apologies.

    Thank you,

    LaVern...

    Hi Paul, no it was off the car round the back of the car. Worth a quid tops for scrap. Some people, eh?
    Any tips on previous members with glazed units?
    All the best,
    Andy

    I thought it might but as with the cars it not good to assume, as my wife often tells me. I struggle to get through typing a word let alone sentence or paragraph, I think just about every post I make has at least one typo and often many and all my edits often add to the mistakes.
