    yeh ...I made one of them after seeing that video about a year ago to try on wishbones....a little bit of mucking around elsewhere but certainly works if no press available.

    It's in line with a suggestion I made on the forum a while back re loaning tools out. If enough of these home variants were made we could loan out to a select few......maybe!!!

    Here's a flange spanner I made, to prevent bending the studs on a transfer case. And a drift for the radius arm bushes, I had machined up for $10, (I provided the steel). I also made a hand vacuum pump by reversing the rubber washers in an old bike pump.

    It seems that sometimes you need three hands, to re-assemble some small electric motors. Here is an easy to make tool for holding carbon brushes in the correct position, so it is easy to fit them over the commutator.

    Measure the distance that the brushes need to be held, drill a hole in a piece of wood, big enough to accommodate the rotor shaft and / or bearing. Nail some wire brads or nails in a pattern around the hole that will hold the brushes, without snagging on the brush holder assembly.

    Use pliers to snip off the nail heads, so it is easy to slide the assembly off after the commutator has been slid into place.

    Place the brush holder over the tool and slide the brushes back, so they are held by the nails. Slip the commutator in, then lift both the commutator and brush holder off the tool.

    Now thats a neat idea. same principle as the hydraulic pipe benders but you could probably roll rings if you could some how feed the steel in.
    I have a few bits and pieces lying around that I've turned up on the lathe. I'll see what I can find in my travels.
