Looking for large socket and breaker bar in Sydney

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by lui, Jul 14, 2010.

  1. I'm looking for a 46mm socket and a 50cm breaker bar, the usual suspects like Supercheap and Repco don't like them.

    Any shops in Sydney stock both items at reasonable price (under $100)?

    There are some cheap breaker bars on ebay with unknown quality, so prefer local shop unless they ask too much.
  2. Provided you can get your hands on a socket, just use any length of hollow metal piping for the bar. Does the job just the same, and does not cost anywhere near as much.
  3. Hunt for a total tools type place,, socket will probably set you back about 50 bucks,, breaker bars are expensive for a good one, but cheapies arent too bad. you will probably need a adaptor,, im guessing that a 46mm socket will be 3/4 drive,,and breaker bars are way cheaper in 1/2in .
    Find a specialty tool shop and ask the staff.
  4. Trade shops should have this sort of thing. most likely an impact socket.
    I have just spoken to tradetools direct (not sydney) but gives you an idea. socket -$25 and breaker is $57. They are force brand - I have used this stuff before though probably not to the extent you are needing, but I have found the quality good.

    Bought a 46mm impact socket from total tools with 1/2 " drive. Heaps cheaper than a "proper" socket. Used standard breaker bar in my sidchrome set except went to Bunnnings and bought a short length of thick wall gal pipe that fitted snuggly over breaker bar.

    Sounds to me that your changing the either the front sprocket or headstem nut.
  6. Had a look on eBay for 46mm Socket. Ranges from $47.19 to $110.11! :-s

    Hope this is one of those cases where eBay is more expensive than buying locally, or you're in for an expensive purchase.
