    Default Anyone in the SE Metro have a press I can use?



    Looking for about 30 minute use of a hydraulic press. Doesn't need to be fancy, just needs enough space to fit a disk brake/wheel hub (about 14" across) so I can press in some wheel studs. Local machine shop wants too much $$ for such a simple job (I could almost buy a new press at Harbor Freight for what they're asking). Happy to kick in a few bux (or beer) for the trouble.

    Wheel studs? I have used an extra nut, hardened washers, and an impact to install wheel studs.

    That's my usual technique but these are new hubs/studs and clearance is too tight. I managed to strip the threads off the first one (it was a PITA to cut it off after that so I don't want to try that again). Crown is not known for the best quality hub casting so the holes are probably a little smaller than they should be.
