    Nice - axle stands are such a great investment.

    @DeviateDefiant - may need to think about some more of these bud if your set are still holding up your '03 CL9

    I actually ordered some mate, and then the order was cancelled and refunded. I'll definitely grab some more.

    Has anyone used Ambersil - Leak Detector ? Apparently it helps in oil leak detection from the engine or transmission areas and this does help quickly identify the source of a leak, saving time and money.

    Yeah I saw that too for a starter kit you can't go wrong, albeit the jack is good for wheel changes and is not a high lift jack.

    Rofl, I and @SpeedyGee tried to physically lift my engine out of the bay when we were having crane issues - we learnt we both need to eat more spinach :Laughing:

    This ones a bit of a selective bargain as it was from an offer to previous customers, MachineMart offered no VAT on a purchase over £50, for whatever amount of gear you wanted.

    So i picked up a Clarke Pro digital torque wrench for £70, as my current manual one needs calibration I think and is hard to set at the lower spectrum. I think £70 is a good price for a decent brand, the thing is huge though so might be an :thumbdown: to use in places with little space. Have yet to try it out though, but it will come in handy for both car work & cycle.

    Regret not picking up a better car jack with the discount too.
