  • Exactly. For things you don't care about the appearance (plumbing inside a cupboard, that bastard rusty nut on your fence post...) left wins everytime. For nice things (bike parts, visible tap fittings...) or things that need a press fit and can't go in a bench vise, right wins.

    Basically, get both, you won't regret it.

  • I thought putting this here first maybe better than straight to the main forum.
    Recently upgraded a few tools and got very carried away with the idea of a #toolboxwars style lovely flight case for bike tools and a second one for car tools.
    Reality is that I just don’t have the time to follow this through and don’t use a multitude of tools at the same time at enough frequency to warrant laying all these out in a beautiful and easy to grab display within a flight case.

    Result - I have 2 Explorer flight cases with layers of shadowfoam cut to the case size that are now taking up space in storage.

    Please shout if anyone is interested in either of these.

    Can update with case model numbers.

  • Where abouts are you at? I'm not in London, litttle further north but some cases are on my shopping list for mobile mechanic duties

  • I’m in central London, but occasionally travel up to Manchester area, not sure whether I’ll be going any earlier yet but I’m heading north beginning of May

  • where do I buy a SINGLE one of these?
    I love them but I have lost the 4 mm :--(

  • I have found Wera UK to be very customer focussed. Give them a call/email.
