Someone reminded me (and now I cannot find the original thread) to post a photo of the cage I use to replace axle gears to keep the axle straight in the press. I use a hub on the bottom.
Here's a link to the original thread:
Thanks Mark !
No problem, I also put a link to this thread in the earlier thread. Hope it doesn't drive the forum software crazy to have two threads with links to each other!
How about some pictures to show how the cage works?
Seems like a lot of work to fabricate something when all you need is a piece of square tubing.
Had those materials about the shop - didn't have any square tubing.
I'll try and get a photo of the cage in my press but it just stands up with a Ford rear hub positioned on the arbor plates and the axle gear gets pressed on by the ram.
