Default Quick UK ball links.........?

Where do you get a rimer( Ball Link Sizing Tool). I got one from helidirect Call today and was told "yes that is for a 600 not a 700" Then why did they sell it to me in the first place? Anyway where can I get one that will work on the UK links for the 700?


This is the one I got,

Ball Link Sizing Tool 4.75mm

Did you snap the link on it? Read the instructions that came with the JR sizer, I have the same one and it works great with the Quick UK links, make sure you don't over do it and the links become too loose.

Yes, I snap the ball link on it. Both the align and Quick uk ball links fit but it's not cutting out of the UK links. You can not tighten the screw any more it's all the way.

Can Quick UK ball links be used both ways? Or is there supposed to be only one side to put the metal balls through?

Read the instructions that come with the JR sizing tool, you suppose to "Rotate the tool, in an orbital rotating motion", if you do that it will remove a bit of material from the link. You don't want to remove too much though, for obvious reasons

There is only one side that goes on the ball, it's the side with the slight bump around the ball link hole. You have to look closely.

Here is some close ups:

This is the side that snaps on the ball

See the difference?

Hope this helps.
