    Thumbs up New Tool From BVM - Clevis Pliers

    Hey guys,
    I wanted to share with everyone a new tool that you will want in your tool box. You will never want to install clevises without this tool again!



    Check out www.bvmjets.com for more information.

    For all #2-56 and #4-40 Metal Clevises

    Great idea.. no more split nails, or worse, over bent/stressed clevises.

    For that, I'll make some bits for my snap ring pliers. Couple of pieces of buggered up allen key shank, some heat, a hammer, file & a little tempering. Should be able to make a set in about 1/2 hour.

    Interesting idea.. I guess for someone that wants a tool for everything it will be great.. I have used a flat blade screwdriver slid into the closed clevis then turn the screwdriver to spread the clevis open.. It has worked for many years but I can see the need for a tool I suppose...

    Hey Syseik , I thought I had the last one of those in the entire universe . I think it was less than a dollar and a lot easier to get into tight places .

    I have to totally agree but that comment will get you into trouble.

    I bet people who buy BVM also have Mac Books as their laptops

    Why do you guys always pound the p*ss out of anyone that comes out with new stuff? I'll buy one, great idea, will get it with my next BVM order.

    Unfortunately, one can't buy good tools anymore even if you want to spend the money because your $4.99 Walmart mentality has put all the quality manufacturers out of business and driven it to China. Now we get to choose crap or crap.

    BTW, I'll probably order it on my Macbook Pro, IMac or maybe the Ipad mini, depends which one I'm on at the moment. You're in the wrong segment of the hobby if you're looking to save money.

    Mike

    Maybe he plays classical/fingerstyle guitar?

    Hard to say without seeing his left hand, though.

    I can't help but laugh at what the RCU trolls think up. I can assure that "The Hand" is not BV's, there is not a drop of paint or CA residue. Jokers be warned the next time you call the BVM office and reach one of the lovely ladies that answer the phone....they know who you are.

    Each of the "real" modelers asked to test/try the product have had nothing but positive things to say. I've heard "I wish I had this 20 years ago." several times.

    In my opinion, the ease of clevis installation in servo pockets and on tight flap control horns is worth every penny.

    Dustin I have idea for one more attachment witch is the fuel line stretcher for 4mm to make them easier to instal over bigger nipple and bulky filters ,and nother attachment to help remove the same fuel line from fuel pumps will look like two u shape same size is the fuel pipe nipple one will push the fuel line away and the other u will rest on the pump ,,patent pending,, let me know if you like the idea thanks.and one more think make the Clevis attachment with 80degree angle for easier reach from the back or front not just vertical .and just suggestion I think the Clevis tips should not be straight and should have this design this will help pulling the Clevis .
