For the number of cranks that I have had done in 30 years (2) I couldn't justify the $800. Sure it would pay for itself after 8 cranks but with my luck I'd realize it after I already had 8 cranks done and then I'd buy the tool and never have to do a crank & I'd end up with a nice $800 paper weight. :think: :confused: It does look like a nice tool but I'd be better off borrowing it from a friend when I needed it. When are you buying yours? ;)Originally posted by jmics19067
... Dave, if you think about it the price of the jig is not too much if have to buy a brass hammer, 3 dial indicators and a truing stand if you are dedicated to rebuilding cranks but the dial indicators and brass hammer can see a lot of different uses compared to the jig.
