I bought a small tool kit for bike repairs on my OCR3. I've done small things, like taking off the cassette, cranks, bottom bracket, and a few other things...I wanted to get a torque wrench (which I did) from the US (Sears 3/8"), but didn't realize that I now need the hex bit attachments in order to use the wrench on the bike. Unfortunately, living in Japan, it's very hard to find this. Does anyone know where or what site to go to to have some hex bit attachments sent over to Japan? I'd appreciate any information. Thanks a lot. Happy riding.
The wrench from Sears was bought for me by my girlfriend while on a trip to the U.S. So now I have no way of getting back to Sears for a while now. Thanx for the suggestion, though, gmason. McDave, you gave me 2 great sites, and I've been looking at them. Lisle doesn't send to Japan and it seems the snap-on site is limited to what they can sell here in Japan. And I also noticed they are extremely expensive. Well, what else am I to do?
Have someone here buy a set of 3/8" socket hex bits and have them Global Priority sent to japan. I'm guessing a set of Sears hex bits-6-might be $20 or so&tax-less on sale.You can cheap out and get Harbor freight bits for $6 (or less).
The Global Priority would be $16-$17-so it would cost $40 for the 6 bits from Sears-under $30 from Harbor freight. You might have to lose the little "case or rack" they come in-it might not fit in a GP envelope.
You have to armor the inside of the envelope with duck tape so the hard,pointy bits don't punch thru.
PM me if you need more help.
GP is very quick. Several months ago a freewheel was delivered to Kyoto just 7 "real days" after it was sent from New Orleans-sent Thur, arrived Thur-fast!
I've never thought of ebay...never done it before, so gmason et al...I think that's my best route. I looked on ebay and there's tons of stuff that will ship internationally. Thanks a lot for your help everyone. I'm sure I'll be set up in no time. Appreciate it!!
