I did develop a tool for the Halibrand type spinners that are commonly found on AC Cobras. They are Like the Elan 26R spinners that have a hollow center where the hub protrudes when fully torque. The solution was to make a center piece that slips into the hub which helps center the tool. The new tool ear design wraps around the spinner's ears and grips the spinners further out. It self-centers itself and I may not have needed the centering Hub pipe. That was the solution for the Alloys. By removing the center piece and replacing it with a leather circle allowed our standard spinners to be used safely. Look at the pictures and you'll see how the new tool grabs the spinners in a way that the tool can not slip off. Here are the the changes to the web site. http://www.knockoffspinnertool.com/
Next Sunday I'll be at the Infineon raceway where there will be many 26R Elans racing. The tool fits the spinner, now I need to try it on a car. i posted more information on the pictures on my site in the "Business and Vendor section"
