Case hardened steel, with nickel-chrome plating for corrosion resistance. Slip resistant vinyl grip. Rare earth magnet allows efficient and easy installation of hard-to-get-to install nuts.
Eligibility: Fits all 200, 240, 400 and 3200 series vacuum pumps.
Bought this for personal use, now the whole shop uses it. MUCH better than the shop modified tools we have.
It makes installing a vacuum pump a lot easier than it otherwise would be. The magnetic tip is especially helpful in getting to that vacuum pumps lower-inboard nut on the O-320
No magnet on mine, rough finish.
Said it has a rare earth magnet, none on my unit. Points not finished, very rough and would not fit over the nut until I cleaned them up. Had to use my old RAPCO tool to finish to pump install.
