    Default Aaaw no! Hes at it again.

    Not sure what this aluminium thing was, but it came in a bucket of parts with a machine that I bought years ago. It has been my mark out dye pot for 30 years but I think its original use may have been a fire hose blank end. I'm re-purposing it for the greater good. Bored the inside diameter to the size I needed.





    Then parted off two pieces to the right length.



    Still have enough for a little dye pot.

    Steve!

    I used a firehose coupling for my forkleg bushing puller/pusher, but it was stainless.

    Cotton, your #4 is what I made also. I also make those for blind hole bushing removal. You top timken is a good idea, it takes a lot of arm effort to remove leg bushings.

    Hi guys. Thanks for the ideas and contributing.

    I needed some discs for this project so out came the hole saw and some alloy plate.



    The discs needed some holes in them so a bit more hole sawing.



    The finished kit.



    Any guesses on the intended use?

    How about a hint, Steve. Is it for a motorcycle, and if so, what vintage?

    he he. Apologies. I was going to post more pictures yesterday but ran out of time. I loaded up the trailer with parts and headed off to a swap meet. A clue...The kit is dual purpose, for blasting and painting. There are 2 per bike....used on Knuckles, U models, Pans.

    Well Steve,

    It reminded me of my star hub seal press, but yours looked too short.

    Look like something to protect the neck area of the frame from when blasting and to keep paint out of that area awhile leaving a nice transition from paint to bare metal.

    Most people will know the following information but I will print it those that don't. The brake area of the hub should not be painted. I protected the original parkerized area to inhibit rust, and the mating surface of the brake drum should also be paint free. It may seem like I have gone to a lot of effort but masking the area takes time and I will eventually get in front.



    Then it was time to paint the hub and I decided to mask my new tool.



    Set the hub in my hi tech painting booth (check out the brightness of my light) and went at it.





    I was happy with my painting but I found this job to be a pain in the neck. Trying to see all the areas after each coat was annoying so I whipped up another fixture to make the job easier.



    Much easier
