Thats nice. Thanks. Maybe some day..

Ah ok. Thanks. So they are better i suppose. At least cause of the hex head because you not need extra tools. I was thinking to buy this or something like that.



or this.









Some gifts from my gedore dealer.












These are very old i suppose. And strange a bit of course.

This of course came in the tool kit of my beloved Husaberg, which was unfortunately sold when I emmigrated from Canada. It's a great opener, but I was never quite sure what they were trying to say about drinking and riding
Nice first post. I like unior, i love husaberg. Welcome.


And nice bottle opener of course.

A screw-holding screwdriver from Athlet.. and the tips are parallel! I want one Time to save up I suppose. Why does everyone else have cool bottle openers except me? I really need to do some catching-up.

The finish is not as good as the taiwanese wrenches and the ratcheting is a bit rougher, like if you would compare a older Snap-On 936 series ratchet with a Dual 80 ratchet.

Very nice ratchet! By the way, I just maintain my model, apply a few drops of Permatex Ultra Slick already been better than when I bought
i will try to repair it !
I think the ratchets get smoother the more often they´re used.

Nice bottle opener + screwholding drivers !

btw: the Gedore 4 R wrenches are about twice the price of a 7 R wrench. For example 12x13mm wrench = 24.75€ or 18x19mm = 29.80€ (2012 list price without tax)

Thanks! The Husaberg was the best old-world tool I've ever owned - beautifully put together and almost limitless fun:





Now I have a KTM -also a brilliant old-world tool, but despite all the mods not quite as good as the (stock) Husaberg was IMO:

Thanks both.

I'll post the contents of my drawers (the old-world tools in my tool-box drawers, that is) when I get a chance to take some photos. It's a modest, but growing (much to the consternation of my Mrs) collection from which I take a disproportionate amount of pleasure and pride.

I'm not sure whether that's specifically in response to my post, but if so; I agree that it may be nicer, and certainly more practical, but I believe it only comes with a KTM. In that case I'd still choose my opener along with the Husaberg

Then i suppose is better for someone to buy the 7r. Unless he hasn't much space in his toolbox or he has a lot of open wrenches.

What do you mean about the finish. It's no as robust as it is in the Taiwanese or that it is not so glossy and silk?

Yes it is a bit rougher than the old one but with thicker oil they Become smoother. Also, as you noted, with the use they become even smoother. The no 10 7ur xs that i have used quite a lot are smoother than the first time. I have it under the seat of my motorbike and i use it very often as a mini ratchet. I don't believe that it will be as smooth as the taiwanese though.

Nice gun man. It's a pity that you sold it. But the new is just as good. What tools the KTM had when you got it? Beta hah?





Τhe majority of my order arrived today. Unfortunately there was a confusion with the same codes for the new and the older and I have not yet all that i ordered. More photos will follow.

not as (almost) perfectly ground. At least my wrench has some grinding marks at the box end on the sides.

Maybe with a modified spring (shorter ?) or maybe remove the spring and store it compressed for a while it will make the wrench even smoother ?.....

I know it hard to find Japan tools supplier..even in Asia, maybe you should buy online.
