Nutsert install tool ...

Which install tool works best for the larger nutserts 3/8, 5/16, 1/2, etc ???

Saw a couple at Blaine; but the air power ones are a little steep $$$.

Randy from Oceanside, CA

PS: If I have to do this 3-4 times, it would pay for the $ tool ?

I have not seen a tool for larger than 3/8-16. If you see one, post up a link to it.

I'm wanting to do this to fix my rusted out nutserts. But kinda confused on what's exactly needed. Besides the nutserts what else would I need?

I ordered my nutsert and bolt kit from Blaine Monday and it was in my mailbox today. That's less than 48 hours from California to Virginia

Just replaced one that was bad. not sure what I'm doing wrong. Torqueing the crap out of the assembly and the nutsert is still spinning. keep wrenching until the nutsert collapses?

You may have over done it and broke it off?

I don't know. how can you tell if it's broke off? it still feels like it's intact. I'm getting the spinning with the lock washer in place and have torque wrench set to 80 and it's spinning before I get to 80.

Describe how you set up the tool.

By lock washer you mean star washer right?

Try a new star washer, the nutsert should never turn if everything is going well.

You'll strip out the threads before you break it.

Here is an idea for everyone that does these big nutserts to consider. I need some feedback on this.

I contacted the manufacturer of this product and asked him if he would build them big enough to do a 1/2" nutsert and he laughed at me. He said he didn't have time, wasn't interested and the market was too small to mess with.

He told me to do it and I related that I don't really like nor do I want to copy someone else's design and he told me to go ahead anyway. If anyone cares to verify this, you can contact Ed from this website which has his number at the top. Please be polite

http://www.rivetnuttool.com/

So my question is, how many would be interested in a tool that costs more than it's worth, is a copy of someone else's design, and has a limited amount of purpose for the average Jeeper? I'm estimating the cost at roughly 50-60 bucks and I'd build it durable enough to sell to the next guy to do his if you wanted.

It would also only be able to do the 12mm and 1/2" nutserts.

The only reason I'm even bringing this up is I get at least 2 requests a week wanting to know where to get an actual tool to set these.

The market is only going to grow, as the many rusty jeep threads this summer is indicating.

I really hope your other foot gets dragged into the Rust-Belt jeep business.

I don't disagree if our nutsert sales are any indication. We ship about 1-3 sets per day and the requests for the tool is only getting more frequent.

Not sure what you mean about the other foot though, from what I've read so far, it appears that some companies have frame repair pretty well handled, do they not?

It's a subtle fulcrum you are on as far as this rust belt jeeper is concerned. Your focus on performance is too tantalizingly close to meeting the needs of the corrosion challenged. And it is off topic for this thread; but a quick example is your use of galvanized elements such as in the GTS. Galvanization as a rust inhibitor is a joke in my region. I don't mean that as a dig; I understand that folks in your area just don't understand.

I understand that stainless is not just one thing; same goes for aluminum. You work with and know both.. But you focus is on performance; understandably so.

It's not just about repair, but also about replacement parts and upgrades.

I ABSOLUTELY HATE RUST! ( and I think there are many more like me up in here) And I HAVE NO USE FOR PAINT! ( except as a rust inhibitor).

Again , it's off topic so I'll stop, but I feel that you are completely tooled-up for a market that you don't see.
