It is exactly what I had pictured in my head when I suggested a beefed up link pin removal tools. Nice sketch! I would def buy one.
Hi McGit, Pat’s simple punch would be all you really need to pop lanyard tubes. I think the main advantage of a simple little screw press similar to what I envision would allow for controlled flaring of new tube too.
I agree, but that’s why I think your design is so good, and I like it so much. It would allow for controlled removal of the tube, controlled reinstalling, and controlled flaring. All from that one tool. I can even imagine using it to flare tubes that were never flared and rattle(Advocate, Spydiechef, etc).
I’m always apprehensive about tapping them. I messed up a g10 military scale around the tube doing that. Probably operator error, but would be nice to lower that risk.
