Misc Designs from other Projects
This is a hub puller I made for my stock Studebaker M5 truck. This truck has a semi floating, tapered keyway axles that the hub is pressed onto. having a hub puller is the only way to get the drum brake off for any brake service since the drums are pressed on behind the hub. This has holes to fit a 5 on 4.5", 5 on 5" and 5 on 5.5" bolt pattern. Since Bend Tech has its limitation a threaded tube or nut will need to be used in the center of the tool with a matching bolt. Also this design is an assembly consisting of different parts. Each part would need to be separated out and cut separately then welded together. slot and tabs have been used to accommodate placement before welding.
This is a Texas Star gun target I designed. It worked well in real life but if I were to make it again I would make the dove tails about 1/2 the size on the targets and target arms, and do some relief holes in the arm to prevent targets from falling off when the arm is struck by the bullet instead of the actual target. the clamping system for the target and the pillow block bearings are missing from this design as are the captive nuts and bolts that keep the parts of the stand together. The target parts including the arms and star plate need to cut from 3/8 AR500.
