WORKSHOP: TOOLS AND CLEANERS Tooled up?


Whether you’re sprucing up the workshop, or helping your customer develop their home maintenance skills, the right tools for the job are essential. Mark Sutton rounds up the distributors carrying tooling and maintenance products…


Draper


SPECIALIST tool manufacturer Draper has an extensive catalogue of tools, with an increasing number of workshop and brand specific units. It’s not just tools either, workstands are available, with Draper’s featuring a 360°


soft grip clamp and frame allows work at a comfortable height and the convenient integral tools tray keeps tools and parts close to hand.


Silverfish


AS ONE of the original Silverfish products, Rock and Roll lubes have been designed for the harshness of UK conditions from the start. With four different lubes and four different greases – each engineered for a specific performance and purpose on your bike – this label has your custom covered whatever the weather. Rock N Roll's original Red Devil, Super Coat, Super Slick and Super Web


greases provide the perfect friction minimising, maximum protection formulas for the moving parts of a bike. Packable 4oz doses, or workshop sized 16oz servings mean your customer will never run out and let the rust in just before a ride either. Cable Magic is another of the


brand’s highlights. Light enough to slip down wires and leave controls silky smooth for precision feedback, it’s a must have for any workshop. 01752 843882


Among the tools designed specifically with the professional mechanic in mind, you’ll find free wheel removal tools and units for re- setting brake pistons. Consumer facing items such as chain cleaning sets, soft grip hand pumps and full on tool kits, complete with allen keys, tyre levers, a pump and much more is also available to retailers.

Raleigh


MOTOREX comes packaged for the retailer to make the most of their margins, with both smaller DIY mechanic ready bottles, as well as larger volume containers. Exclusive to Raleigh, the


range is varied, offering degreasers, cleaners, oils and greases for suspension and moving parts, brake fluids and even items like cleaning fluid designed for use on helmets. All Motorex products are designed to work in conjunction with each other and as such you’ll find cleaning kits within Raleigh’s stocks. All the spray cans (both


manual and aerosol based) can be used upside down to access hard to reach spaces, which is a patented unique selling feature. 01773 532600

Nanoprotech


ENGINEERED by Russians, who for the most part have even more tedious weather than the UK, Nanoprotech produces a range of lubricants, cleaners and fluids designed to protect your customer’s bike fleet. With a proactive approach to


research and development, the firm has achieved strong results against its competition, particularly in corrosion and rust tests. What’s more, it’s become an internationally renowned label, now found in over 50 countries. Degreasers are available in both 250ml and one-litre bottles, both with squirty triggers supplied. These cost £7.95 and £15.95 at retail, so it makes sense for the customer to invest in their bike care in value for money terms.


Nanoprotech also produces


tyre sealants, sold in 100ml bottle, among other things. info@nanoprotech.co.uk
