That looks handy.

Nice deal. What did you use? I have a thick snow plow wear plate I picked up off the road. Though about using that for a bolster plate. I like what you did.

Thanks y'all. I'm not sure what the steel is. It came in a bucket of scraps I got from a friend. It's about 1/2" thick and 4" wide. I found that drift in the top pic in an junks store think I paid 2 bucks for it. I feel like the long taper works pretty good.

Very useful tool. I'm wanting to make one myself.

The drift looks like a bull pin.  http://www.mcmaster.com/#bull-pins/=11o6w1y  I bought a lot of them to have the right size when I want it.

Lol, a bull pin.  As many of those as I've sold over the years you'd thought I'd noticed that.  [crazy]

Unless you want to buy more of a certain size. Better than saying "I want one of those thingys"
