...wheel hub thread chaser for fixing the hub cap threads.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
Jack Putnam is making some new ones, they may be done?
Thanks for the heads up Joe...
I'll handle the shipping of course- just don't want to spend a hundred bucks to repair one wheel...
If you have a good hub puller and some time they will straighten the threads, just screw it on and off while tightening the clamping bolt it takes a while but I have done it several times on beat up threads Just a thought.
Rick thanks. I do have a puller and will give it a try.
You might use a fine 3 corner file and a good pair of reading glasses. Screwing something as heavy as a hub puller blind on the fine hubcap thread seems like a recipe for disaster.
Did you get my PM?
The only difference between the hub puller and the rethreader is there are slots cut across the threads to clear the chips. The clamping slot if yours has one should do the same job. Would be the same as using a threading die that is adjustable. You are just trying to clean the threads not cut new ones.
Chuck, I got your PM- sent you one back, thanks.
Joe Bell, do you have contact with Jack Putman ??? Reason: I would like to get on a list for purchasing one of his thread chasers. I would assume it is a much better quality than the original. Please respond, thank you
I think Jack was reproducing the Stevens hinged tool, last sold original on ebay @ $790!!! They can be clamped on the back of the thread on the good portion, and be wound off, cleaning up the damaged thread as they go. All in all, a very nice tool.

John, Jack's phone number is 419-306-3966 hope this helps.
Thanks for responding Joe, is that $790.00 for the chaser ?????
