Weber Brekke Bridge Tool

Postby SensibleShoes » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:44 pm

Hi there,

I have stupidly mislaid Weber bridge adjustment tool and I can't find anything similar. Does anyone know where I can get one, or an equivalent, in the UK?

Cheers

The only Weber dealer I know in the UK is TAMCO in Brighton, if they can't supply one your best bet is Weber in Montana.

BTW for the Brekke ' traditional ' bridge which both my Webers came with, it's not an allen key, just a straight hex key.

Thanks for the suggestions

The tool is like a tiny spanner - a 5/16th hex wrench according to Weber's website. I remember putting it somewhere safe - a bit too safe, as it turns out! I thought I'd be able to find something similar on model makers' shop sites and the like - but no luck.

I'll give TAMCO a try.

Thanks again

I doubt whether Trevor will be able to supply one - so far as I'm aware he doesn't deal in spares (unless they're for instruments he's sold) - if you get no joy from Webber; who have had some recent changes, you could try here - [url]http://bridgerproducts.com/products/original_brekke_bridge[/url]
