I am now semi retired,please dont expect an all singing and dancing web site or me to be here 24/7.I use and test all the imperial based tools I sell on my own classic vehicles. I dont sell metric tools or cheap badly made ones not fit to be a mile downwind of a decent classic car.
All tools are sent Royal Mail signed for to ensure safe arrival.
For items with no paypal button please call for price of post etc. If you dont want to use paypal,I can accept a card payment over the phone.
You are welcome to enquire what else I have,I also have some brake seal kits etc listed here.
