Cool tool Are they cast alum or extruded/cut alum? When you sell out the first run, it would be cool to do a combo tool: Same style, thicker depth- one side is sloted, flip 180 and the other side has 21mm hex.

They are phasing out the slotted style, right?

Those tools are very well made. Good job! I do have to ask one question................................you say that they will allow consistent hand tightening. How are they at removing an old filter with a couple of thousand miles on it?

If the filter was not over tightened when installing then the snowflake gives you enough grip to remove it even after 2000 miles. If it was installed with the snowflake you'll be able to remove it with the snowflake.

There will be those cases where the filter was over tightened (by someone else of course) and here you'll need to resort to more drastic measures.

They're cut from .25in sheet. Thought of doing a combo tool but concluded we could offer one of each cheeper than a single combo.

They also make nice valentine gifts

Channel lock pliers will remove a filter that was over tightened. Then you can use the tool to tighten the new filter.

That's what I said when I first saw them.
Or maybe that's what I acted out.

Is the hex on the Vespa the same as the K+N filters?

and... I suppose there's always the fear with a tool like that you could easily torque the filter on too tight.

Well it is scooter related, but I think you may be right there.

In the early days of ModernVespa we took a poll
It turns out that everyone loves Patric & no one really cared for politicians

I was going to, but I think many of our sponsors ads have expired. Plus we don't have a list of who is or isn't a sponsor...

Multiple choice - you pick.
A - you're a sponsor and I'll move it there
B - you're not and I move it to for sale
3 - we leave it right here - those are freaky cool wrenches!

Thanks,
Steve

My favorite thing about the snowflakes is that no two are exactly alike.

This has been confirmed by an ISO 9001 certified third-party testing lab.

Every snowflake is unique, kinda like MVers.

An expert with 31 posts.


IMO (and I'm nowhere near an expert) but someone posting ad spam in the first 300 posts needs to buy ad space. I'll never buy something in the For Sale section if the ad is their first post. The other 'usual suspects,' Max, Johnny and Nyle, Bobby, the Chad, and now the OKT group, have a reasonable amount of leniency. I'll scream like a big girl if you do take advantage of it.

I have my snowflakes; I now have more tools to change oil on Vespas than I have Vespas. Might have to work on that, so each one can have its own tools.

Here's another use, although what it is doing cannot be discussed in this forum because it isn't scooter related. And yes, it is a week old now. Three weeks after M@'s favorite day.

Is that the new Snowflake holders for the MacBookAir?

I guess that would give it lots of room for Air Circulation.

1- patrick is not only an established member of MV, but also contributes regularly.
2- this post didn't start out: "hey check out my stuff and buy it!" and mr. owens was respectful enough to link to his own website for further information.
3- patrick is a sexy freekin' beast of a man, and i'd totally make out with him.
4- we can't talk politics because somebody always gets their feelings hurt.

thanks for understanding!
