Leaking pads? You’ll know for sure using this high quality specialty tool made for leak testing.
The solid brass knurled shaft creates a very solid feel when in use. Compress a small strip of your favorite testing material in the jaw. The steel jaw grips with a slip of the brass ring up to the tip. A piece of cigarette paper, plastic wrap, fishkin or other thin material trimmed to about 1/4″ wide by 3″ long works well for this purpose.
Once the thin material is secured in the tool, insert the thin strip under one side of a pad. Press the pad down using normal pressure and try to pull the strip out. Repeat all around the pad. If it pulls out easily from one area, there’s your leak.
This quality tool is made of solid machine grade brass and stainless steel for durability and long life. 98mm overall length.
