Good to know Park is so good with warranty. They are the best tool company I've worked with.

That said, I also really like Hozan Tools, but they are harder to find. You can get some stuff through Amazon.com

I just looked through Hozan's catalog, and I didn't find any bicycle specific tools. Are you referring to their regular hand tools? (Screwdrivers, Torx, etc.)

That's what I mean, it's hard to find their bike specific tools. If you ask them they'll send you a catalog that shows them all (I have one somewhere). The only other place I've been able to find them is this search on Amazon. Strange. But the tools are awesome, simple and higher quality than anything else I've worked with. Wish they made more and marketed them better... if anyone knows more about them it would be great to hear!

Wow. I have to say, I've never seen crown race PLIERS before. I saved the $50 and got one of these http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=7343

But the most interesting tool in that Amazon search is the spoke threader for only $135.

Of course its no Phil Wood Cutter & Threader for $4283.99 http://www.outsideoutfitters.com/p-834-phil-wood-spoke-threading-and-cutting-machine.aspx , but hey, if you build a lot of wheels, this little ditty could save you some time by letting you cut your own spokes and then thread them yourself.

Wow, I hadn't seen the Phil Wood cutter before. Looks cool but Jeez it's pricey! It must work awesome. I've used the Hozan spoke cutter before and found it a bit tricky to use.

This thread reminds me, I've got a Park CCW-4 with a broken ratchet mechanism. I see they don't sell it anymore so I'll send them an email and see what happens.

The CCW-4 had a bad habit of stripping the ratcheting mechanism, a problem they were never able to solve. At least that's what I was told. That's why they stopped selling it.

Let us know how the Park torque wrench is. I haven't used it, but I've used a similar beam type wrench. Just wondering.
