VAR Depose third hand brake tool

I used to use one of these every day back when I worked with Jack Hearne Cycles. Brilliant tool, so much better than the more recent dodgy sprung wire ones. Thus I was pretty stoked when I saw this one come up on ebay and picked it up for a song. One of the most useful cycle workshop tools, do yourself a favour and seek one out for yourself.
