Default custom 1/8 drive pin remover!

hey guys last night i had sometime time on my hands to design a new tool for my hot bodies buggy its a drive shaft pin remover so i can change the fast wearing pins and maintain a reliable smooth running car! i know that tool companys have made these before but i belive the cheapest one is around 60 bucks! so after learning that i desided to make my own using a round bar of alum, lathe, drill press and files this is the end result ......

Good job.

Here's mine



Mine is square with two longer bolts that brace it flat on the table eliminating the need to hold it in a vice or with a second spanner.
The whole is elongated to accomodate the dog bone as well as the head.
I have 4 bolts, one has a flat end for initial movement of the pin, the second has a tip to push the pin in another 2mm, then the 3rd and 4th bolts have different wholes drilled at precise depths, one is for doing the centre drive shafts and one for doing the front / rear drive shafts, drilled at correct depth so to push the pin in so pin is exactly centred depending on wich shaft I'm doing, as Mugen use different length pins in centre drive shafts as the out drive drive shafts.

Thanks guys that tool looks great!! And something about using a hammer on something like that seams like a bad idea! if you buy the Hudy tool you pay 100+ to take a sledge hammer to it? I find the bolts a lot better!!! as far as the tool goes I am remaking the bolt to push the pin out all the way it will be a grade 8 bolt! But it works good just working on the finishing touches
