Tip of the day

Postby malky » Sat Mar 31, 2018 8:07 pm

If you have ever have trouble getting washers and spring washers to stay on an awkward bolt or stud while you try and catch a nut magnatise them first and they stay in position - discovered this idea earlier on trying to put a Piper four into one back on a Honda CB900F ' it works a treat :D
