NWSL Puller, Puller II, Return of Puller, son of Puller, etc.

This stuff is new to me. Never had these kind of gadgets in the past, but they are cheap enough ...

Is the "Puller" adequate for my N scale needs? (I don't quite understand what the Puller II is versus the Puller, etc).

Thanks!

Mark

I'd guess Puller II is the second version  ;)

I have neither so I can't help.

Smart thinking. Unfortunately the descriptions for each are also verbatum the same. Both are sold at the LHS.

I have both , if I were only to have one , I would choose the Puller 2 , and have the 4 pin adapters because it gives me more depth room .

Both pullers are designed the same, a boxlike structure with a screw in the top and a 'V' cut in the bottom opposite the screw. You turn the screw to push out a gear, wheel, whatever. The Puller II is a deeper box or rectangle, that is you can put a bigger thing inside the box. That makes room for the tiny adapters which really won't work in the Puller (I). Since the box is just aluminum, it is possible to bend the box. I've never done that, just the 'V' plates. These go over the large 'V' machined in the box, to help hold and position whatever you're going to pull. Those are sheet metal and I've bent a few on things that needed quite a bit of torque to let go.

For the extra 10 bucks getting the Puller would cost, I'd say its worth it to have both the basic and II model along with the 2 smaller sets of adapters, especially in N-scale where the standard size puller end is larger than any axle or motor shaft I've ever seen on any N-scale equipment.

Thanks this is really great feedback. "Really useful" as said on the island of Sodor ...  ;D
