View Full Version : Gear Pullers (Walkera vs NWSL or others)...

I finally have enough projects I have put on hold because I do not have a gear puller.

So I know that the NWSL Gear puller is a bit of a standard in N-scale. However, anyone have a Walkera Gear Puller? It looks like more of a precision / convenient device, includes multiple pin diameters (down to 1/2 the NWSL one if my math is correct), and is around 50% to 60% the price.

Any thoughts or experience?

I have one of those, built well and works fine.

the tool from e-bay looks good.
it will likely do motor work quite well.
the nwsl puller will be more useful if you need to do largeish n-scale driver work.

Thanks Victor -- good point about the smaller size gap than on NWSL... I read up on it a bit more and a review says it works for up to 3/8" gears (so up to 3/8" drivers) although this is not officially documented anywhere that I can find...

@drbnc (http://www.nscale.net/forums/member.php?u=14818) - I read some feedback that the slide in plate is a bit bendy / weak. Have you had any issues with pulling N-scale gears or wheels with it?

No issues with the plate. There are several sellers, maybe I got a good one. Of course, it’s no hydraulic press, so I don’t go crazy torquing it down.
