Tool For Replacing U-Joints On Ag Power Shafts
Robert E. Sanner, York, Neb.: "To replace U-joints on ag power shafts and some automotive shafts, I've found a conventional vice works best. I made this tool that hangs on a vice and leaves both hands free. It consists of two pieces of strap iron 5 in. long by 1 in. wide. You bend them over with a hammer to fit the jaws of the vice. Then weld a 1 1/4-in. nut on one side and a 3/4-in. dia. by 1/2 in. long rod on the other side. It works best to put the nut on the front side of the vice. I've never seen a tool like this in any service catalog but it works good."
