Anyone in the Rochester/Buffalo/Syracuse area have one of those spiffy KRW magneto magnet gap tools I could borrow for a weekend?

The guy who makes them is pretty close to you.

Interesting , but pretty sure he might want me to buy one. I only have one model T and hope to only need it for this one installation. Wish there was a model T tool co op.

As it is,I have one ,but am reluctant to ship in today's world. The shippers have a bad rep for losing things. I bought mine from Bob Scherzer 5-6 years ago.It wasn't that bad.Amazing how much the middle men make on some things. Wouldn't cost much to call him,and you can always recoup when you sell yours.989-642-8649

I had one I bought new and after I was done with it, sold it on ebay for a profit. Jim Patrick

Looks like that would be easy enough to make if you have a spare transmission shaft and access to a lathe.

Have a shaft and an old connecting rod ... just need a spacer and a couple of 1" ID collars. Just wanted the easy way out and need to spend my money on more important elements.

A friend of mine made a dandy one using pipe, pipe fittings, and a bearing from an old caster wheel, with a piece of a used 0 - 1" inside micrometer welded to the end. He had a few hours work and around $20 in materials to make it.
