AS other have said it's not a difficult job and bits to do the job are
easily available, but like Slats I rather like SUs.

They need a bit of a fine touch, which many present day wrench
wielders seem to equate with awkwardness and complexity,  but in truth
they are very simple beasts. I wouldn't necessarily trust the corner
garage to set them up for you but a well educated specialist or simple
perseverance at home will pay dividends.
