Default Team Tamale

go with the Team Tamale ones...all of their stuff is absolutely top quality...I believe he has a pic on his web page.. www.TeamTamale.com
he has a reputation for only making the best stuff.

Wish he would make a complete tool set.

Been using the Integy Pliers works great from touring car shock shafts to 1/8th buggy shock shafts.

Do people really have a problem scratching their shock shafts? I used a cheap pair of vise lock pliers with almost no problem for years...

yes they can scratch, esp some of the ti nitride coated ones.

I own both the integy and the Tamiya

I use the Tamiya 9 times out of ten as they are sure not to scratch, but some times a cup is alittle too tight to get on all they way and I resort to the integy as it has alittle better grip.
Haven't had a scratch with either

have you tried this? i think the electrical shrink tubing would work over needle nose lock pliers, or a piece over the shock shaft then cut it off once built. i'm gonna give it a try tomorrow on the T2 007.

Using large wire cutters, hold onto the shaft in the very first (top) thread and it'll work awesome. Of course, it can't cut into the shaft yet will not let the shaft slip or spin. You end with no chances of maring up the shaft when you hold in the groove of a thread. Didn't believe it myslef but it's worked great for years....and it's free!
