I'm sure I paid about 80, but too long ago to find the paperwork. Ollie may remember. 180 plus VAT seems steep.

I've been in need of something like that for years I don't like 'cracking a fitting' and getting oil everywhere and risking contamination I'll see if I can order myself one of these when I have some money to spare.

Did you ever get yourself one of those devices ??? - I dont see an engcon ecoil and all that reorganising happening anytime soon and i get a bit fed up of the routine of getting rid of the pressure on flat face couplings - I was interested in some myself if they are any good.

Cheers

I bit the bullet & bought one, haven't used it yet but looks good strong quality, comes with different size adapters so csn be used on all sizes of fittings
