    clocks on wheels ,seriously?

    There should be a rocker near the jaws that you can use to lock them closed. At least there is on my pair, but they may have changed that.

    Mine's rockerless. I was surprised when I bought it, since the lock is a thing I've seen on every other cutter I've used. It must be a new thing. Probably saved them 5 cents per unit.

    my compact cutters are like that, with the Rocker.
    They allow you to cut SKS mudguard stays with one hand

    My pair have a lock on them, it's a silver roller near the pivot.

    What you're asking for needs to be a separate tool. There's way to many hub bearing sizes to try to incorporate into something like I made yesterday. The more functions you try to give a specific tool the worse job it does at all of them.

    Oh boy am I an idiot. I thought that roller was some kind of scoring thing. I was looking for some other kind of lock. I take it all back now. The Knipex is the BEST!

    I do not intend to replace in full a bearing press.
    Given that this PF bb tool may well have a 10 or 12mm shaft, wouldn't be a good thing to add the option of a few drifts for those very common #6000/#6001/#6901/#6902/#6802/#6803? they're all based on a 10, 12, 15 or 17mm bore.
    I'm just talking about an extra option, in case one really needs to

    So that's 5 more ID's to worry about and how many OD's? You don't want to press a bearing in by it's ID so the OD is actually more important. Even if you were to do a dedicated press of that style just for hubs you're still asking for interference issues. Hub bearings often get pressed in past the lip of the shell so if you have a stepped adapter it's going to run into the next size before the bearing is fully seated. The smaller sizes could also run into something inside the hub shell, like the axle. So if you're talking hubs each OD ideally needs it's own size.

    If you've got some idea I'm overlooking I'm all ears but I'm just not seeing it as a viable option.

    I see in another way: use a decently long (30mm?) turned drift with two different ID on each side: just flip accordingly.
    This way, only 3 OD's would do 6 sizes.

    #6000 and #6803 are 26mm OD, the #6000 is 10mm ID and may use the shaft to align the bearings, on the other side a 17mm step machined will aling #6803 17mm ID
    #6001 and 6902 share 28mm OD, one has 12mm Id and the latter 15mm
    #6901 and #6802 are both 24mm OD, one has 12mm ID, the latter has 15mm. Very popular sizes in lots of freehubs and lightweight hubs.

    What do you think?

    Having one size per side would definitely eliminate the interference issues. It still needs to be a dedicated tool. I'll add it to the list. I've had a few requests for a small bearing press and I'm sure I'll bring one to market at some point. Goal is to do 4 new products a year and this year is already filled up, so don't hold your breath.

    I got tired of every time I tightened my Park truing stand in it's base to keep the front to back adjustment from slipping, the base would deform. This always caused the bottom of the base to not be flat and it would wiggle and rock while I was building wheels. Not impossible to live with, just very annoying. So I went to out local market and purchased a bamboo cutting board and bolted the Park base to it through the three holes that are molded into the plastic. Rock solid. I counter sunk a t-nut on the underside to keep everything flush and secure. Right now I used some v-brake conical washers because the bolts I had were a tad too long.

    I made an attachment for my Anvil bender that allows me to easily set two bends on the same tube out of phase by 90* or 75*. This isn't exactly the way I envisioned making it, but I got it done quickly and sometimes, that's what counts.

    I don't see why.
    End of the day, this original is a press, with the drifts already machined and solid. Am I right saying they're °24 and 30mm? In such case, the °24mm step would already do those #6901 and #6802 bearings, won't it?
    All it would need, is 2 pair of machined drifts then, with the measurements I said above.
    Cannot see what are the cons, apart from the shaft not being long enough?

    Uh, and another thing: on the original tool, are both the inner steps machined to °24mm? Or one has a removable collar to fit the Lh GXP P.F. cup?

    Perhaps that could work.

    Both steps are machined to 24mm, there was no need for this custom tool to work with a press fit GXP so we omitted it.

    I know it's Wednesday but UPS didn't show up yesterday. I broke down and got an Albrecht key less chuck for my lathe. Now I want another one for my bench top drill press:/ Does it make sense to spend 4 times the money on a chuck as you did for the machine it's going on?

    These guys are almost done. Most of the parts are getting anodized and powder coated at the moment. I'll need to weld up the T bolts this weekend but I hope to be shipping 2/28.
