    Vacuum rated valve core remover tool

    Does anybody know a brand name / pn for a vacuum rated core removal tool? I currently use a yellow jacket and have never had one that didn't leak.

    Nothing is magic, it works or doesn't work for a reason.

    I think it's worth mentioning (since the OP asked) that Appion is the only one that has a traceable NIST rating down to 20 microns and the C&D brand are factory rated (no official test cert rating) to 200 microns.

    I don't know about YJs core tools rating, although the C&D factory said they made some core tools for them and JB.

    Only thing about the appion crt I don't care for is the rubber wears down fast. I only fiber tighten it and been through 2 o ring repair kits already. Don't use it frequently enough to think it's a normal wear and tear thing.

    Another vote for appion.
    Still waiting for o ring seals to get chewed up or fail.
    So far so good. However you do get what you pay for $40+ .
    I also have a C&D plus a YJ. They're okay but definitely not as weighty or well made as the 2 Appions I have.

    Where are you finding Appion CRT for $40 +?

    Best I have seen is low fifty dollar range.

    Appion had a few problems with the extractor but responded and the new tools are great. Never heard of the 'O' ring problem with them.

    There is a guy on H-talk that sells an extractor for broken Schrader cores-
