    Default Pin pressing aid.

    I made a little adaptor for my Harbor Freight 20 ton press. I hope that this little jewel will make it a lot easier to press the barrel pin out of the trunion. I simply lathe drilled a #7 (0.201") center hole through. Next I opened up that hole to just fit over the ram of the press to about 3/4 depth. Next I tapped the #7 hole to receive a 1/4" X 20 bolt. Next I drilled and tapped holes for 8-32 set screws in two places about 90 degrees from each other. I finished the adaptor by cutting the head off of a grade ? 1/4" X 20 bolt and screwing it into the adaptor body. I will try and post some pictures here:

    Thanks for the kind words! I still need to make a better holder for the trunion. I don't want that thing doing the shimmy when I put the squeeze on the pin!

    I think I will modify your idea a bit. I am going to try to make one for my arbor press

    You do great work! I should know! I have one of your creations here on my desk right now! Please post pictures of your modifications! I would love to see what you come up with.

    I have thought about making adaptors for other size pins and parts. I guess that I will make them as they are needed!

    Yours,

    Hey hotbarrel,

    Did you ever make a modified pin pusher for that big honkin' press of yours? 55 tons!!

    I was just wondering what the pressure reads when you press out a barrel pin out of the trunion!

    Yours,

    Just wondering how your setup worked. Did the alum. threads in your adapter hold up during the pressing operation?
