Although it's undoubtedly a luxury, a star nut setter is a worthy addition to the tool kit of anyone who builds their own bikes. This particular example works perfectly, and it's built to go the distance.
This tool is essential to anyone looking to expand their toolbox, and who enjoys working on bikes. For many, many years we would find ways around the shop to try and guide the star nut in the fork, but more times than not, it was crooked, or the depth wasn't correct. I recall seeing my mechanics ripping out star nuts and having to redo it time and again! Enter the new revised Park tool that makes it easier than ever at setting the star nut inside of the fork, and takes the guess work out of setting the correct depth and ensuring it is set in the for straight. Any questions about tools or other product, please feel free to contact me.
I had the previous version of the star nut setter tool and it worked great. But when I saw this one, I had to get it. Talk about easy. Still works in a similar fashion but the shaft fits over the steerer tube so you can hammer the star nut in perfect every time!
