Discount available to raceways.

Each Guide Buddy 2 includes the above components.

It threads the guide post for your standard 10-32 guide nut

Flip over the post and it faces the surface at the base of the post.

It sands the bottom surface of the guide.

With the removable pin installed, it will face both the top and bottom surface of a guide tongue.(one side at a time)

PSCR has not had them in stock for quite a while, the sanding rings.

 

If any of you are looking for a really well made guide tool this is the one to get. I know Mike had his favorite but I really like this one and f I were in proximity to other racers looking for one this is the one I'd suggest. Lube it well and you won't snap a post.

Mike-

Do you have the threading "die" handle available separately? Also the removable pun? Never had one of those for my threader. Thanks

Let me check with Geary.

With that pin that was added to the Guide Buddy 2, IIRC, there is a magnet installed ,to help keep it in place.

Here's some info I passed along to recent Guide Buddy 2 customers.

 

When threading Red Fox guide with them, I think it really helps if you add a few more slots, and even increase the width of the existing ones.

 

It seems to really help when "backing out", once done threading.

 

Also, WD40 works well for a lubricant.

 

I'll be passing along this info to Geary, to see if he will do this mod, to all the future GB2.
