    Hi all, here is a home made Coleman NRV tool. I have just bought a 440 with a major leak from the NRV.
    There are specially made tools for this purpose but are expensive.

    I made this tool from my home made standard brass stove NRV tool.
    I just cut off the end and made the new male slot.
    It is not a waste as I have two better made NRV keys from Stu so it a ideal sacrifice.
    Its not perfect but only took a few mins to make and will do the job.

    They are nice, if you had a ton of Colemans you needed to remove the check valve on you might invest in one. :)
