    Finalizing our order with Are. A few last minute changes, but currently we stand at:

    37 tools
    10 15 mm adapters
    10 17 mm adapters
    1 16 mm adapter
    4 short push rods

    I promised him no changes after this...

    I'll start getting emails out today.

    If there is room in the box for another tool, I have another friend that is also interested in trying it. If there is no room, I guess that he will just have to borrow mine.

    Thanks again for making this happen.

    around $93 each unit, with using an International wire for payment (which will cost me on my end) but he is working up an invoice for PP so I'll see which is cheaper.

    There is probably enough room, but I've changed our order 4 times since Friday and I promised him "not again." But he prolly doesn't care. Anyway I have an extra ordered for me, you're welcome to it if your friend wants. I was going to sell it to pay for my "efforts" but he can have it for whatever price everyone else ends up paying.

    Sure. I won't say no to that. That would make 3 for me.

    My father put the word out and talked to some of his friends. I would take as many as you can get me. I am signed up for 2 for sure and would take up to 4 right now if that is possible.

    If we can only get 3, I will make him pick who gets the 3rd one.

    Thanks.

    I hate being late to the party...

    But I just found this thread. I would be VERY interested in getting one of these tools with the full complement of adapters. I hope it's not too late.

    Thanks...

    I don't see 4 in your future, but you can have my extra one to make a total of 3 tire tools. You will only be getting 2 15's, 2 17's and 2 short pushers but you'll have 3 tire tools. Now, I may end up with "left overs" after I send the emails out if someone changes their mind. I'll put 75monza on the "sloppy seconds" list :D
    yeah, I can't order more now, everything is pretty locked in. I can put you on the waiting list if you want, #1 position, right in front of 75monza LOL. There might be guys who decide to NOT buy when I send them the invoice. And at that point I'm gonna need my money reimbursed so you would def be my NBFF if you stepped up and bought one.

    Piney- I see a business venture in your future.:D

    Personally, I'd be happy to kick a couple bucks your way for your efforts. I think others may as well.

    Thanks again.:thumb

    here's the invoice I will be paying from, Are has given us some pretty decent pricing IMO. I think I've figured out a fair way to split the shipping charges up:

    Osaühing Nisor
    Are Kaurit
    Soo 4
    Aruküla, Harjumaa
    75201
    Estonia
    Phone: +372 003725044631
    arekaurit@hotmail.com
    Invoice number 0010
    Invoice date 10/29/2012
    Payment terms Due on receipt
    Due date 10/29/2012
    Bill To
    cmdoc84@yahoo.com

    Date Description Quantity Unit price Amount
    10/29/2012 AYR Tyre Mounting Tool 37 $92.86 $3,435.82
    10/29/2012 axle 15mm 10 $12.76 $127.60
    10/29/2012 axle 17mm 10 $13.00 $130.00
    10/29/2012 axle 15,6mm 1 $16.26 $16.26
    10/29/2012 short pusher 10"-14" 4 $27.60 $110.40
    Subtotal $3,820.08
    Shipping/handling $326.57
    Total $4,146.65 USD



    1. every tool incurs a $9 International shipping fee ($327 Int. shipping / 37 tools)
    2. inmates that order optional accessories will pay an extra $1.00 International shipping per accessory, and the inmates that just ordered a tire tool only, will actually get a $1 credit towards their Int shipping.
    3. if you only ordered a tool, then your charge will be $93 + $9 - $1 = $101 to MY office, I will have the USPS shipping figured out by tomorrow, but it's gonna be less than $12 I'm certain, maybe < $11. So the cost to your door will be approx. $113, not counting PP fees (see below)
    4. I have rounded some of these numbers up to make it easier for me and my typing, I'm not trying to cheat anyone.
    5. I should have all the email invoices ready to go out tomorrow with my mailing address as well as PP addy. Either type of payment is fine, just LMK in the email what to expect. When you reply to my email I will take that as your confirmation that you want the tool and you are ready to pay. I told Are I would pay his invoice later this week when I'm around secure internet. Once it's paid, I will post up a copy of the confirmation for everyone to see.
    6. PayPal will be cool, but I need you guys to cover the PP costs, or I guess you could send it to me as a gift, but either way you'll get stuck with the fees. If you're not sure what the fees are, check here http://thefeecalculator.com/
    7. one tool is shipping to Canada and I'll work that out with the inmate.

    Please email me for any concerns or questions, your humble servant,

    ok fellas here are the pics i promised from part 2...so now ive mounted 6 tires. 3 fronts 3 rears... all i have to say is for me its one of the best tools ive ever bought.

    I mounted a set today in a chilly 65 degree weather. I did not warm up tires. I went over to the wall where they had sat for the past two weeks. no tire irons where used only the tiretool, tire buddy and dishsoap.

    Just to clarify, this tool is strictly for putting tires on? Still need to break bead and lever off. Correct?

    rear rim not a scratch....

    so by the time i finished i pushed the front rim bead on in 6 sec and the rear rim bead in ten. The hardest part of the job was getting the tube stem through the hole in the rim... Id truly have to say this has been well money spent.. any questions please feel free to ask.

    Yes this is only for putting the tire on... not removal.
