I see a screw fitted with wing nut. Probably meant to replace a the screws used to hold te wheels to the xray axles, to be used with the setup blocks.

You can make them yourself. Bring a wheel screw to the hardware store and ask for a longer screw and a corresponding wheel nut. Buy enough so you can sell them yourself

Personally I still think that standard wheel screws are good enough. Unscrewing them is faster by spinning your screwdriver by the shaft when the screws have been loosened enough. You can't do that with that wing nut.

lol

Thats what those are. Sorry that wasn't clear. Thats why I was asking.

Hey if a PT costs $90+ why shouldn't metric screws cost 15$ lol

the wing nut ones are the ones I already had packaged. But I agree with you these v.2's are MUCH easier to manipulate. I dont see why you couldn't use your allen driver to spin the v.1's off though . . .

Mostly I made these cuz I always end up losing the screw in between the wheel and the guage. But thanka for the honesty guys. Goo to know before I go make 100 of these : )

I would just use the wheels screws from the FK05.

IMO just another thing to clutter the pit box.

Way WAY too expensive. Like I said in the other thread, spend $2 on wing nuts and screws at Home Depot.

PS. The least they can do is spell "gauge" right.

uh... I didn't know you're the one selling them, didn't mean to bash your product

On hindsight, I think it's a good idea

Just replace the wing nut with a knurled aluminum cylinder threaded so it can accept a longer screw and have about 5mm protruding at the other side. Easier to screw on than the wing nut. I did find it irritating having to grab the screw driver everytime I need to check the camber when I had my Xray T1.
