Default Stahlwille mystery tools....

I picked up a couple of mystery tools today. They are Stahlwille, marked 12617 with a "10" below the part number, and another marked 12617 with an "8" below that.

I first thought they were spark plug sockets, so I almost threw them aside. They look exactly like a normal spark plug socket, but inside the tool where you would insert the spark plug there are 3 rollers. There is a plate in the end with a hole in it, and the plate is held in with a snap ring.


I did a google search, but got nothing.


To me these look like some sort of stud remover, the 8 + 10 indicating that they are used for 8 or 10mm studs.


Pics to follow when I get home, for now just use your imagination (well, everyone except Krusty that is........)....

You are describing a stud remover/installer

Thanks Dave.

Kind of what I was thinking, but I could not find anything with a search.



As with most of the Stahlwille tools I've seen, these are NICE..

if you search for the facom (or many other companies) version you'll probably see exactly what's in your hand

Thanks kwyjibo.

I just found this on Amazon (searched for Facom Stud remover):




That's almost exactly what mine look like.


Here's the link to the Amazon listing for those who might be interested:

I was just wondering about these in the other thread. If these are used for both removal and installation, then how do the rollers inside move, or how do you make them switch directions?

they work similar to a one way clutch in an automatic trans, except of course they lock in both directions.

Default Re: Stahlwille mystery tools....

I just found a set of 3 of these in a pawn shop in Missouri with their metal box and all. AMine have an "A" behind the part number and have "5/16", "1/4", and "3/8" under the mumber. One appears to have the rods missing internally and one may be missing just one. The other is intact. ANyone taken these things apart and can they be repaired??

Thanks

Takes yours apart and then let me know, will you?

FYI if you haven't used them yet: They work great on smooth studs but will crush the threads on anything threaded. I just use two nuts in that case.
