      Still plugging along with it! Got it mounted to a pallet and a piece of 3/4" plywood, much more stable and still semi portable if it needs be. The air switch that controls the breakdown cylinder was a tiny button, hard on the finger, so a couple of pieces of scrap aluminum, 4 bolts and nuts, and I now have a thumb lever, much easier to work. I mentioned above that IMG_20200711_190709190.jpgIMG_20200711_190759430.jpgIMG_20200711_190746407.jpg the cylinder bushing was shot, I didn't have anywhere to get one made, so I did the next best thing.....I honed it out with a fine grindstone to fit the OD of a piece of 1" copper tubing. The tubing was a slip fit over the cylinder rod, so now the piston stays in a straight line through it's travel, no more hang ups I hope. And here is my first total break down and dismount, a rotten radial on a 70's aluminum wheel. Took a bit to get it to turn loose since it was so rotten as well as the learning curve along with it, but I'm getting better, LOL! Got three more of that set to dismount, one more 70 and two 60's , they may be fun! Then I'll clean them up for trading fodder or just sell them outright.
