Easy Arbor Press Modification




What do you think about this video?

321berber: that ratchet idea is pretty cool. i think its quite annoying to get the right handle position with the arbor press. i will probably copy your mod!

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: Thanks for following along and for your comment. John

MsQuickshift: Good Idea John

Duckyistrippin: Horizontical is a legit word....dont let anyone tell you any different ;)

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: Thanks for your comment and for following along with my videos. John

Rudderman: Just purchased my first AP and found this video. What an awesome idea! Thanks for sharing this with us John.

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: Russell, thanks for watching and for your comment. The teeth should be completely ground down as much as possible to avoid interference with the arbor. Hope this helps. John

Russell Verdin: John I have a question for you, when grinding down the teeth should I grind them down flush or should I leave them raised just a little? The reason I'm asking is in your video it looks like the teeth are slightly raised and not ground down flush. Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated thanks, Russell

ugotit33x: Great Idea

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @shellman1973 Thanks for your comments and for following along. John

Roy Murphy: Great idea. Thanks for sharing it.

SafeArmsReview: very cool modification - I just picked up an arbor press & this will help a lot. THanks

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @SteamEnginePsycho Casting can be ordered from PM Research. Google PM Research Steam Engines and you should get their website. --John--

baconsoda: @johnrob281 Well, I did the mod this morning and it is a great job. I only cut two teeth off and it worked fine. The only issue was that I was out in the 'shop at 6am and busting to get going but an angle grinder seems to quadruple it's volume at that time so, out of respect for my wife (fear?) and not wanting the neighbours to break my windows, I held off until 10am. I have the camera set up to show what I did and try to give your mod more exposure. Video this evening. Best Wishes, Brendan.

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @happymark1805 Thanks for following along with the videos. I agree, it looks like something that should already be in the design. It's easy enough to make the mod. --John--

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @g0vqw Sure is, i've made those things for years and am amazed at how well they work and can't beat the price! BTW: It looks like you've been doing a lot of camping lately...I like that Honey Stove. 73 John/W5CYF

Wiltshire Man: John, Is that a pop can meths stove next to your arbor press? 73 Sandy

happymark1805: Nice mod, I wonder why the manufacturer never came up with that idea, but i'm sure when they see this video they will :-)

Roy Lewis: @johnrob281 John, another great thought, which, of course, I didn't consider: "throat size" as in band saws. Sold! Cheers, RL

W5CYF / TinkerJohn: @baconsoda When i was watching your video this morning, I remembered the mod I did several years ago that might work well with your 'top hat" fixture. So I grabbed the camera and went out to the shop to make a quick video. Hope your mod works as well as mine does. All the best, John
