Two new non-marring tool sets from Laser Tools

When working on high-end, show-quality classic vehicles or automotive displays, the fit and finish of the fasteners is just as important as the paint and bodywork. For example, chrome-plated fasteners can be damaged easily, especially when using standard metal spanners and sockets.

That’s why Laser Tools has introduced two specialist non-marring tool sets: the ‘Non-Marring Socket Inserts’ set (part number 7463) and the ‘Non-Marring Wrench and Pry Bar’ set (part number  7464).

With top-class classic or show vehicles, fasteners can be plated, anodised, chemically passivated or even painted. Lots of care and attention has been put into building and preparing these vehicles, so extra care and attention is also required when working on them. When you need to use a socket, reach for the socket inserts set. Six inserts fit metric fasteners from eight to 17mm and are supplied with a snap-together metal ring to keep them tidy. Choose the correctly-sized insert and slot it into the corresponding socket, for example, for a 13mm fastener, the insert fits into a 17mm socket.

The wrench and pry-bar set includes a large and flexible pry bar plus four double-ended wrenches that usefully fit both metric and imperial sizes: 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 13mm, 3/8″, 7/16″ and 1/2″. The pry bar is ideal for removing interior trim panels, headlight rims and hub caps. Supplied in a sturdy blow-mould case. These tools are tough and robust, but will not mark or damage the plated, anodised or painted finish. You can tend to your projects with peace of mind.
