Headset Press

Dwight, here is a photo of the headset press I was referring to. I would suggest that if you try this you should buy a bolt with a hex head on it, not a round headed bolt like the one here. That way you can get a wrench on top and bottom. If you start the headset cups nice and level they will press in no problem. Make sure that the washers are a much bigger diameter than the cups so that they seat the cups down with more equal force. I had to use two washers on each end as the big washers have a big hole in them, so I stepped up to them with a washer that has a hole closer in size to the diameter of the bolt. Does that make sense? It went together like this:


I'm sure you'll find more creative setups on the web, but this one is easy to do also. Good Luck! Later! Travel Gravel!

How Do I Copyright This?

I will never start a post about politics on this blog, and this one is really more about a creative idea that came to me today, so RELAX if you don't get it or like it. There will come a day when you hear someone else say the term, "Obamanomics" and you will remember that you saw it here before he was even elected! For better or for worse. Later!
