Safety Wiring Materials and Tools
« on: January 31, 2007, 08:01:55 am »
Anyone know where I can order some safety wiring materials and tools?

Any quick advice would also be great.

You local shop should be able to get the pliers and wire easily as well.

The pliers aren't cheap.

Our dealership sold me a set for like $20.  That's the cheapest thing I've ever bought for racing.

As an ex aircraft mechanic I will just say, you pay for what you get.  I have a set from harbor and they work, but they don't grip as well and I am always yelling at them.  I also have a Snap On pair at home and they are awesom but cost way to much.    you can also look at www.craftsman.com  and search for saftey wire pliers.  Good sets with different options.  I would bet though that Rob at Lithium will have the best set at a good price.

aircraft spruce should have exactly what you need.  Spend the money on the good pliers.  You'll be glad you did.

+1, buy the good ones, ours were rediculusly overpriced 15 years ago even by todays standards, but they still work awesome, my suggestion is look for a set with a sealed bearing on the spinning end, it really helps to spin fast and very smooth (i.e predictable) and I rarely break any wire.
