New tools!!

My dear friend who made my quartering jigs, wheel puller, axle and wheel installer, has made me a new tool.He made a jig that you install a wheel into, and using my drill press, you simply push down and out pops the wheel from the white insulator..COOL!! In some instances the outside diameter of the wheel rim will measure several thousandths more than the majority of the wheels. You simply turn the jig around and use the other side, as my buddy made the other side a little bigger.Then he also made a fixture where you insert the blind driver to remove the flange-less rim...I'll post pictures probably after 9 this evening as I have car show stuff the rest of today. Stay tuned..

No need to be sorry, we can wait. Sounds like a good idea for separating the wheels.

Shown in the first picture are 2 fixtures that are used to press off the rims, and to separate the white insulator.
