Hollow Spindle Cut Off Lathe

To build a driveshaft you sometimes have to perform time consuming tasks, like cutting out welds, cutting tubing, squaring the ends of the tubing and dressing those ends for welding prior to pressing in the new yokes or stubs. Time is money and saving time is making money. There is no better "time saver" in your shop than a Dial ShaftCutter.

Available in 7" or the 10" Magnum Bore

The removal of a yoke or stub, can be a real exercise in futility. If its an RPL or SPL yoke, it will likely take  a young "bull" and a very big hammer and a very long time before that tube will finally release the part. 

With the Dial yoke puller, you machine out the weld to where its flush with the surface of the tube, then continue machining, but no further than the thickness of the tube wall.  The "jaws" of the puller will now fit into the machined kerf and hydraulically remove the yoke or stub. Take a look at the "You Tube" video.

See yokes and stubs being machined out and then removed using the YP-4 Yoke and Stub Puller.
