Swingarm Pivot Socket

Post  Earache on Fri Apr 04, 2014 7:10 pm

Had 10 minutes to kill today and whipped up a castle nut socket for the swingarm pivot.
Started off with a piece of scrap steel, turned it down to fit and bored out the center...


Marked off where the tangs needed to be...


Slapped it in the mill and went to town on it...



Milled a couple of wrench flats onto the other end and did a test fit. Perfect!


Not pretty, but it'll get it apart. Need to get some hex steel stock and make a better one. The hex will allow me to use a socket on it and a torque wrench.
