More bush re­moval ideas

The Shed - - Letters - Neville Hewin­son, Kamo

Hello edi­tor,

In the Septem­ber/Oct. 2017 is­sue, there is an ar­ti­cle by Bob Hulme called The Right Stuff.

Could I add my ex­pe­ri­ences to the parts where Bob de­scribes how to re­move a bronze bush from a blind hole?

Yes, I have cut a slot in the bush to be re­moved, never used the hy­draulic sys­tem, but a sim­ple sys­tem is to tap a fine-threaded tap into the bush and keep screw­ing the tap in un­til the bush is forced out.

Stamp­ing a la­bel on steel (if you are right-handed), start at the end of the la­bel and work back­wards, and then you can see your spac­ing, etc.

Yours faith­fully,
