Thanks Rhys, just got mine today. Not used them yet but they look just perfect for the job! Talked to one of Phil Wilkes's service crew last year and he said they used them on the rally car to help change soccer ball wheels so really pleased you have made some - thanks again.
Had a couple of new tyres fitted to my front Soccerballs a few weeks ago. Saw the fitter was stuggling, so gave him my sawn-off bolt to use. Turned out that a week or so previously he had nearly lost the tip of an index finger trying to align the wheel/hub bolt holes on another car (not sure what). He was most impressed with the stud and is planning to make some up with different common threads to avoid the risk of it happening again ! The irony is that he is a piper, waiting for it to heal before he knows if it will affect his playing !
