I have some 1/2" chrome Oventrop Valves to install and they have two little bumps on the inside of the nipples. What would be the best tool for tightening these things? Do they make a special wrench? I can do it with a tapered square rod or a tapered handled wrench but I was wondering if they made a special wrench.
It's not so much a case of "You got what you paid for", as it is a matter of "You DIDN'T get what you DIDN'T pay for, and you're NOT going to get what you thought you were in the way of comfort". Borrowed from Heatboy.
I had seen that tool, as well as "spud nipples" and thought that might be the thing but these oventrop nipples, well, they are very well cast and I thought they might have some proprietary wrench. I have only worked on Fintube before, this is my first radiator. :-) And its not even a radiator its a piece of Runtal baseboard.
where to buy ... been looking and looking and looking
Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I'm also trying to connect a couple of valves to a Runtal, and would like to get one of these smaller tools but I cannot find them. Do they have a special name? Radiator spud wrench is finding plenty of the larger kind used with a pipe wrench, but not this compact version.
