A better setter.
Unior has been making pro-grade bicycle tools at garage-sale-grade prices since your grandma was flippin' her first pancakes. When it comes time to finalize your headset assembly and install the star nut in your fork's steerer tube when building your bike, reach for the Unior Threadless Nut Setter & Guide. It'll ensure level nut installation — something you'll come to appreciate if you've ever set a star nut askew inside a steerer tube and had to figure out how to get it out. Made of hardened and tempered tool steel with a phosphated finish, Unior's Nut Setter & Guide will last through many, many bike builds and rebuilds.

Works well, with minor improvements
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This does the job just fine, although I wish the alignment half of the tool fit a bit further down on the steer tube, it just makes it a bit more tricky to get the star nut perfectly centered. Other than that, works great, nice and heavy duty and I should never need to replace it.
