    They work well....unless the fitting has been over tightened so much that the copper pipe has been crushed in - then cutting them away is the only option. Chers John

    I don't like the olive pulling tools. I prefer the monument olive cutters.

    Mine is shiney and new, albeit being 4yrs old, but on the plus side, that more weight in my tool box does mean that I don't have to go to the gym on a regular basis ;)

    I got my olive pulling tool, my boiler transporter, floor board lifter and general all round labour saving device by placing an ad in my local paper.


    He`s been with me now for 6 months.
