Current Tool Specials


Recommended Posts


Thanks Ash I have ordered one today..and as I don't have the guns in the arms to manually do the wheel nuts with the normal cross brace anymore I decided to treat myself and the price was great..

What Socket are you using now days for the gun?..and what torque setting do you set your gun at?..

Thanks mate for the post it is appreciated

Keep Well

I did get mine a bit cheaper as an Australia Day sale item. This just means that you will have to use yours more often to get your moneys worth. lol

You squeeze the top of the switch to undo and the bottom of the switch to tighten. Mine is set at 110nm which I believe is the torque setting for the Toyota Aurion wheel nuts. I still hand/finger tighten the wheel nuts then use the gun for the final tightening. I use the star pattern and go around twice. The set does come with 2 double ended sockets.

Actual wheel nut is 13/16"or 20.6mm not 21mm which can still work with a 21mm socket.  I did go and buy 13/16"standard and deep impact sockets which Repco had as a clearance item [bit of overkill] however I could have just used a spark plug socket instead.

I am hoping to be giving the rattle gun another workout this weekend assuming suspension parts all arrive by Friday.

Previously noticed this 1700kg low profile trolley jack in the latest Repco catalogue for introductory price of $59. 

Regular price is $99 or $99.99

Ended up getting one but have yet to unpack and try it out.

It's great value at $59. The SCA ToolPRO one I purchased a little while ago was the same money but it's rated at 1600kg. I don't think there's much difference to be honest. Still excellent value nonetheless Ash. Did you also get a ToolPRO one too ?

Bit of a difference with a slightly lower maximum height. I noticed the metal side carry handle.

Certainly did get a TOOLPRO one when they were last on special. 

MechPro Blue comes with a 1 year warranty. I think that TOOLPRO comes with a lifetime warranty.

Bunnings has a 1600kg low profile jack for $65. There is price and there is quality.

I overlooked these socket sets because I already have more than sufficient.

Last night, I must have been too tired to not to notice the bonus torque wrench.

Trade Tools recently repeated these socket sets and bonus torque wrench deals.

1/4" drive torque wrench was very useful for toqueing the bolts on the water pump for my Aurion.

I have been using my electric rattle gun a fair bit lately and noticed a current special for $75.

I have kept this electric rattle gun on my eBay watchlist.

Noticed that it is further reduced to $69 so bought another one.

That's pretty good value. Also, if you're an Ebay Plus member you get a further 10% off with code PLUSFY10 until 08/02/2021

Just noticed the email from Repco for their latest catalogue featuring the Mechpro Blue 1700kg Low Profile Trolley Jack for $59. 

Clicked on the link to go to the Repso website which is down for maintenance.

Good news is " Here's a 10% off* coupon, use 10OFF at checkout, expires in 24 hours. " so I expect that this will only apply for today Thursday, 4th March 2021.

That's good value. So is the discount coupon on top of the already discounted price then ? So it will be $53.10 for the jack ?

I wish they could could a proper deal on the 3T variant or even an aluminium jack. I don't need another back breaker of a jack.

Definitely need something to lay on when getting under the car Ash, especially to insulate ourselves from the cold concrete. I have the "homeless man" version of this, a couple of flattened large cardboard boxes. The insulate well and provide a small degree of comfort.

Just having a look at the link I found a very funny anomaly SCA have imposed on the purchase of this product. See if you can find it 😜

Large cardboard is a good workaround. I do have one of those pilates mats, not used [by me] but too thin. I did check the size and thickness of this mat so it should be comfortable especially for my aging back and knees. This mat might also be handy to keep in the boot to accompany the spare tyre for those unwanted roadside events. 

Circuitous logic makes sense to me so you cannot order now. Presumably SCA webmaster has scheduled the activation of these options on the Superbuy product pages for 00:01 on 10.06.2021 or 23:59 on 09.06.2021 .

I'll take your word for it. It was good for a laugh though, Happy Monday lol !
