Kim,

Dont file the idea away.

:Director: Make the tool and put it somewhere safe.  :Director:

You can then have hours of fun, trying to find where you hid it, when the time comes to use it.

Cheers

Mike

Mike,
Many thanks for the tool idea and for the instructions for use. This was all very timely as I'm tidying up (finishing off?) the Mastiff and Wyvern engines.

The new tool looks like:


and my first go at a clip:



Thanks again, David

Hello Dave,

I am pleased you found the little wire wrap hose clip tool useful.  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:

They are very quick to make and very therapeutic to do. The finished wire hose clips look very neat and tidy.

They are also easy to remove, simply cut the wire loop and pull the two sides apart.

Just come across this Mike - I like it, I like it lots!  Simples!  Must go and make one ASAP.  Solves a hose clamping issue on my beer pipes very nicely!
