Tool manufacturer Facom has produced an unusual socket set case, which allows you to see if any components – sockets, extensions, etc – are missing, even when the case is closed!
The ratchet itself is a 3⁄8in pear-headed type which is strong and light with a maintenance-free mechanism and a handle that is resistant to workshop chemicals, oils and greases. It comes in 6-point or 12-point socket sets, the sets include a range of sockets from 8-22mm, two extension bars, a coupler and the ratchet itself.
Price is £164 and you can get more information from the Facom tools website or by telephoning 01142 917266Enjoy more Classic Motorcycle Mechanics reading in the monthly magazine. Click here to subscribe.
