Yes; I probably should have posted in the tools forum. Figured it would be more fun here.

Yes, it is a puller. But for what and made by whom?

edit: this is quite possibly the highest quality tool I've ever bought.

Does it pull the rear hub off the axle shaft?

It is used to pull the rear hubs off of the axle. Only way to do it properly.

Correct. Spit hub puller from Canley Classics. It's a thing of beauty, must weigh 10lbs.

That must of cost a fair amount to ship!

I made mine for TR6 rear hub. Still a PITA to bang them apart

Scott - you should have picked that up when you were over there and brought it back as 'luggage'.

What did it cost to ship it? I have looked at these from Canley, very nice looking and well priced (although I have done my hubs now), but as I recall shipping just about equalled the cost of the puller.

Casey - what do the two bolts coming out the top of the puller do?

guzzul;
the two bolts are for a handle to keep it stationary while tightening centre bolt. I had milled in two flats for a large 3in wrench but when I lent it out nobody had a wrench that big.

I started out with a 6x6in lump of 4140 steel and
machined into what you see here.

Hello Scott,

you made the quiz rather hard as I first had to download the picture then brighten it to see it.

This seems typical of photos posted on the internet, so I'm not just getting at you Scott. There seems to be some loss somewhere along the line. E-Bay is a favourite.

By the way I have a simpler device, simply a thick ring (3\4"0 of steel drilled to match the hub studs which I couple a stout two leg puller to. Works well.

Casey-

Make a couple more of them will you? The hub pullers for the TR series are hard to find. Yours looks great.

Thanks Randy. I think this one is the tenth ? one I built. This is the only one I made out of a solid lump.The others were a three piece affair.One inch ring on the bottem drilled for hub fitment,welded to a heavy wall tube (half in/wall thickness) for the riser,then a two inch thick ring for the top machined to fit inside the tube and welded and drilled for centre bolt.
The one pictured is about 15 years old now, and done it's share of hubs.
No longer have a shop or lathe,since moving into the city .

Mechanical drawing of same would be a neat touch.

Keep on.

I'm living+working in Europe (Crakow) for 6 months on a project. I had it shipped to my office in the UK and a colleague brought it over in his hand luggage. Got a few questions at Heathrow, but it made it just fine.

.... a colleague brought it over in his hand luggage. Yikes. A 'mule'.

Bet that lump did a number on the scanners.

Here's an engineering drawing of a Churchill Tool hub puller that I picked up somewhere on the net sometime ago.
