    Re: Mirror adjustment tools

    Hi Ridge,

    I was finally able to remove the mirror adjustment sockets from the horizon mirror frame.

    However, it doesn't matter how much liquid wrench or wd40 I applied to the socket, or the amount of heat with my heat gun, I wasn't able to move the screw inside the socket. So if you have another socket then I would just buy it from you. Else I think I will just drill out the screw and replace it with another.

    Hi Ridge,

    I need two mirrror adjusting tools only. Over the weekend I visited my friend who has a CPlath mirror adjustment tool. I was able to use it to adjust the index mirror. However I could not use it to adjust the horizon mirror. The reason was that the square head nut on the horizon mirror sunk a little too deep so that the tool wasn't able to grab it. Did you ever run into a problem like this before?

    Here is some pictures of the mirror tool that my friend has.

    I am away until Wed. Oct. 12th and will get back to you shortly after that. Is it only an adjusting tool you need, or new mirrors also?
