  • A good Model A tool


    This is a great tool that every Model A owner needs, to efficiently and easily fish out your broken bendix parts from the fly wheel housing. It has a durable / bendable rod that is 24" long, with a cap on the end which prevents the sides from magnetizing to things when your fishing it down. The cap is held in place by the magnet and then pushes up once it bottoms out. For coming off the snap on truck 15.00 is real cheap.. This almost feels like your bending a piece of fat solder but it really holds the shape nicely.

      To me, a good start to give the man who has everything would be penicillin.

        I did not think you could get anything off of a snap-on truck for $15

              A 2' length of 1/4" plastic tubing with a 1/4" diameter magnet 'stuffed' in the end will accomplish the same.

              Sorry, no prestige 'Snap-On-Logo' ........

                  I agree Mitch
                  The plastic tubing, would follow a path of least resistance…..Where as, your tool, will follow the path in which you guide it to.

                  The plastic tube will still work though.

                        Each one will do something the others won't do.I have one of those Blue Point ones,on that one I bondo'd the steps on the end.Then I sanded it into a cone.I actually use that one for most magnet jobs.I have an earth magnet in the end of a vinyl tube that I made for adjusting the steering clutches on Bobcat skid steers.When (not if) I drop the 9/16 wrench down between the chains the tube will change direction as I feed it down between the chains.Same thing pulling it back out.I have one made with a length of thin solder for retrieving 9/16 sockets out of JD crawler steering clutch housings.I have another one with an earth magnet epoxied onto the end of a 6 foot brake line,I made that one to retrieve a key that was laying under the edge of a seat in a locked car.Turns out that one gets the most use of all.It works great for picking up sockets,wrenches etc. that I drop under something.

                          Mitch, I took your post seriously and had a recent need for it. The addition of a borescope would have saved a lot of time and frustration.
