    I have a couple from some inherited tools I got a couple of weeks ago. I just need to dig them out, but I can check this weekend. I hear or seem to remeber reading Harbor Friegh tool was ok to use.

    Unfortunatly, I think Dr.Dirty is out hammering beers at the hammers because I am sure he knows since he has them.

    I'll be there hammering beers before dirty, and I'm still sitting at my damn desk! lol. I didn't use nutserts for my trail mods flares, I think I just used two bolts with nuts on the rear and whatever came with them for the front. I'll have to crawl under and look I guess.

    I've used the harbor freight one. Pretty good quality for them.

    I got a set for work at McMaster-Carr. Yes spendy but good quality. I used it for a few things. They are handy to have around.
    Hey Dickhead, get out of the fast lane! Unless you're passing of course.

    Re: nutsert tool

    I've installed hundreds of nutserts (and Ive tried every tool from cheap to ridiculously expensive) nothing works better then a 3/8 air impact with a wrench set at a very low torque setting using the bolt and nut method.

    You will need a few nutserts for the trailmods install - I was able to get away with a few nut & bolt substitutions, but not all unfortunately.

    Hire the best tool you can get your hands on (or buy) - cheap shit will end in tears.

    I got a Daffra adapter, similar price to a decent hand job but waste of $ in the end

    I bought the cheap harbor freight tool, hopefully if is good enough to do 4 nutserts, not bad for 14.41

    first, your new sig video is tremendous!
    second, I just ordered some B piller armor and I'll have about 6 or 8 nutserts to do on each one. I'd loved to borrow that HF tool you bought, I'd go in halves with you on it.

    I'll let you know when my stuff comes in.

    I have been using the HF cheapo for years and it works fine if you are patient.

    I am a fan of the puppies also! I know a few people who used the HF tool for installing the evo skins and they said their hands were toast after! That being said, ill use it as well because I'm cheap as hell and my hand will feel better after some beer and motrin!
