Here you go Alvin - this is a frame i made earlier this week to pull the wheel bearing and ABS ring from a rear axle shaft on a 1996 toyota surf (fourrunner??) - the ring on top of the frame is an old spacer ring that i turned one mm from the centre so as to be able to press the new bearing and spacers plus ABS ring back onto the axle shaft.

P.S don't laugh too much at the welding skills.



I converted this from an old whitworth open ended spanner just last week to remove the fuel shut off solenoid from the injection pump on another toyota hilux 3.0 litre diesel ...... probably took me about 3/4 hour of cutting and grinding to get this specific shape otherwise it would have been about 4 hours to remove the injection pump and replace it.

Your homemade puller is cool as anything! And the modified ring is just the
sort of thing a DIYer makes instead of buying the whole (expensive!) set. :)

Cool! :)

That's what I'm talking about! :)

That little piece of open end wrench is cool too. :) Got a couple cut-off
wrenches around here where someone had cut 'em off using the corner of
a bench grinder just like that. LOL :)

Opening up open-end-wrenches is pretty common, got a few where others
had done it and got a few where I done it. My favorite is an old Herbrand 37
wrench. ...was 1+1/4" & 1+1/16" ...opened up to 1+5/16" & 1+1/8". :)

1+5/16" = pitman arm nut
1+1/8" = (3/4" nuts and bolts) inside the coil springs on my '75 F150
I'm not all the way sure but I believe it's now a 37A wrench? :)

There it is right above the "pickle fork"...


One thing's for sure it worked great at reaching between the coils in the coil
springs and loosening those spring retainer nuts! :)

Did that in '81? Anyway that wrench (with no sizes and just numbered) was
old then. LOL :) Gave a dollar for it at an "old time" hardware store. :)



-----------------------

Let's see some more! :)
Anybody! :)

My welding?
...got two choices...
coat hanger and gas
or
6011 "farmer" rod
xD

ps- Ever check out Alloy Artifacts? :)
Here's a 37 wrench, but someone opened it up to a whopping 1+7/16" &
1+1/4" and it looks like hell, IMO... LOL :)

yep done that to except carried a couch up 1 story ladder across porch roof and through the window. Anyway I thought this was a cool tool post. This tool makes wood shingle tear offs a Breeze!!!!!! After all about the only other
tool that u can have in each hand and get more done than with just one
would be a wrench? You should see this in action at an old lath and plaster wall when remodeling. Not advertising just the best pic & info for what it does
