Anyone know of a decent pair of ball link pliers for the Synergy N5? My std ones are too small and I can't find the older "Anderson" marked Graupner pliers!

Use a drumell to make the holes bigger. I dont belive that anyone makes ball link pliers in that size. Works great for me.

I have that same set of Robbe pliers I bought from Ikarus many years ago. By far the best ball link pliers I have ever used.

I did the same, just dremel out the fork part of your favorite brand.
Been using them for several years, since 07. Works great.

After scratching my balls with the dremeled ball link pliers I now just use a fiber stick and pry them off . No problems yet . I would like a better solution as well .

I have a machine shop making a few ball link tools for me. I have the original schulter ball link tool from 20 years ago. I am going to make a few changes ,but they are easy to use and very compact in size.

What is nice about them is you can get into the very tight areas without the fuss of regular pliers handles. Perfect for the N5/N9 machines.

I will post some pictures when they are done.
