          Yes that is correct, but I have called my local supplier and they called Brunswick and they stated that it was no longer available.... so if you have one hang on to it... So if anyone knows where I can get one please let me know....

            No, that can't be right. Call Brunswick customer service yourself and ask them. I can't believe that they wouldn't have a vendor making that tool for them. Customer Response Center 1-800-937-2695. Probably will have to wait 'til Monday to call.

              That would make it a bit tough for them to sell any more facing kits

              That is a great tool, I hope your local supplier is mistaken

                King3 I would call Brunswick as stripperbolt suggested and find out for yourself....it would supprise me if they stopped making that tool. It is kind of a necessity for properly putting on the facings. Without that tool, some may have to resort to other methods of putting on the rivets which wll lead to less satisfactory results ( aka deformed facings).

                  Oh I agree. it doesnt make any since to me that they ( Brunswick) would do away with this. It is a must have tool. I will call them on Monday myself and see and I will post what I am told. Thanks

                    Sounds good and thank you in advance for sharing what you find because this will be usefull to many other mechanics.....I would hope that if Brunswick does stop producing these, that some other company would be smart enough to step in and make some because this tool is not one of those you can do with or without it.....it is needed in my opinion.


                    As a side note if they are not produced anymore I am lucky enough to have 2....I don't think I would part with one though in case one grows legs and walks away....I do not want to be without this tool! It would take a small fortune to make me sell one of them LOL

                      Ok, sorry it took so long to get back to this. this is what I have found out.

                      called Brunswick, they said the part number is good but, they have 100 on order with a 8 week lead time. so I called my local supplier (which I use to work for) and told them what I found out. For them the part number is longer good, and hasn't been for over a year. so they was going to get with their Brunswick rep and get this mess cleared up!!!! so as far as Brunswick it is still good but is on back order. For my supplier they have to get it cleared up with Brunswick... I hope this helps if someone needs one(like myself)..

                        If you haven't gotten one yet...Western Pacific currently has 2 in stock. You might get one from there if you are in need of the tool sooner than your distributor can get them from Brunswick.
