Ball Joint Press
« on: October 03, 2018, 11:36:29 AM »
Built a new ball joint press, pretty much a copy of Smike’s but with much more beef.

1” thick plate on top, 1/2” thick plate on bottom 2” by 2” with 1/8”(?) wall square tubes for uprights. 20 ton low profile bottle jack ($40 @ HF) bolted to the 1/2” plate

I need to get your puller back to you...  Are you still in the Henrietta area?  I try to get to the Red Barn once a week...
