Obviously all the " I never or why remove the second bolt" guys do not service there rotor heads.....

Can you do with out his tool...certainly as mentioned a vice with leather covered jaws....little heavy for my field toolbox.
ViceGrips and a papertowel?....sure bearings can be installed easily with a hammer too....still not the best method.

The word is "their" BTW. And really? Them there rotor heads are serviced as required by their owners (I appear to be the only one who does this by the way)by simply removing one of the two bolts, and allowing the remaining bolt to remain installed in the spindle. Why a comment like this would lead someone to believe this method of service disassembly is indicative of someone who does not service their rotors heads escapes me. Please enlighten us with your further brilliant insights.

I too only remove one bolt! It seems easier for me to reassemble the head when I put one grip one then slide it thru the dampers i can easily hold it while i finish the other grip.

ESWLFSE,
Thanks for the grammer lesson....
Some of them "their" rotor heads need that "their" second bolt removed so you can service bearings. Cuzz they seemz relly hard to getz off ovr the bolt and the spindl is bigger on the inside.

Now that you are enlightened go grab your spindle with some vicegrips and realize who the "**ckhead is"....

So what if somebody else designed it. The name is what sells.
I'll be getting me the duo 50/90 GRIPPY.

You enlightened me MXRACERX43. I have many spindles you mention. Can't replace bearings without moving both screws from the spindle.

Putting aside who did what first and whether you need this or not, more heli related tools available makes your hobby experience more enjoyable.

Some will choose home brew method and some will opt for pre-made tools.

Just like people complaining about Tareq's videos, some will like it and some won't. If you don't need it, you don't have to buy it.

There is no need to speak for everyone and say "YOU' don't need it. However, you are entitled to say "I" don't need it.

I believe I have been using the same home brewed version as Bobby was using for a few years and has been a great addition to my toolbox. I'm looking forward to retiring my "home brewed" tool and purchase myself a Grippy or two (Duo and Nano for me) I want them now!!!! Don't knock it until you try it!

Cletus
I introduced the prototypes for beta testing at IRCHA Jamboree 2010.
Do a Google search for Cletus Wrench and see for yourself!
This tool has been been around well over 10 year's for the exact same use so you didn't design anything .

Good stuff Bobby and Heliwholesalers .

Yeah, it´s amazing how this thread got to this situation in such a short time...

Maybe it is just such a simple device that all of the haters are pissed that the idea was not their own.

And no, i will not be getting one... so no fanboy here, but it is a good idea.

For anyone who has tried to stuff an MA spindle into an MA head with the fuel tube damper, I think this tool would be a great time saver...

Well I guess most of the newer pilots never though of just using and extra clutch. Hmmm. That was hard to figure out. Been doing it for many years that way. Not sure what they are getting for this tool, but an old worn clutch works wonders.

Dx7 With Ion Power Supply. Why use anything else.

Screw the patents, that's nothing more then a bunch of legal BS. We all know the one with the shinyest/prettiest handle with a catchy name will sell.

Way to go Bobby, are you going to offer the complete set?
