Gear Puller

To adjust or take off wheels, gears and worms. Comes in box with 5 different pins. A train modeller really can’t do without this.

Included pins for axles with diameters of 0.9mm, 1.7mm (2 versions), 2 mm and 3mm.

More very useful tips of the use of the gear puller and other ways of removing gears, worms etc can be found by following this link. It is in fact essential to read this before you start using the gear puller, in order not to damage the tool or the gears.

HOT TIP

There are 2 x 1.7 mm pins in the set. If you put one of those pins in the drill/bench drill and hold a file against it, you can make a (roughly) 1.4 mm pin. Hold another file or a piece of wood on the other side, to keep the pin straight during filing. The result is very handy when you use if for the most popular size of shafts/axles, 1.5 mm, and you don't damage the smallest pin. It's very easy to do, measure with callipers during the process to stop at the desired diameter.

Oil in precision applicator

Precision oil for use on model trains. Use for brass or other metal gearing or to lube the axles. It's a vegetable based oil, so safe with most plastics. Very easy to only apply one drop.
