Arbor Press Modification

25 September 2010 - 10:31 PM

Hey everyone,

Couldn't find anything on this in the forum, so I thought I'd start the thread.

Basically I was considering moving into pressing rockets rather than ramming, which would allow for whistles and whistle/BP hybrid drivers.
I realised the easiest way for smaller size engines < 1 lb, an arbor press would probably be best. Except that the clearance isn't big enough for most tooling, unless if it's a custom made special short tooling or something.
Basically, has anyone had any past experience in modifying arbor presses? (I know witchitta buggy did something with it, but only gave good details on changing a hydaulic press)


Pianomistro's Tools

12 September 2010 - 03:40 PM

Hey everyone,

I've just ordered 1/2" BP rocket (endburner) and 3/4" 1lb BP rocket (coreburner) sets from Pianomistro (http://pianomistrosc...tools.110mb.com). Heck if I'm lucky, the spindles/rammers may even fit Gregs Boyd's set...

Was rather excited when I saw his tools and they seem worth it for the price given! I shall report back on quality if or when they arrive. Although his website did say that he makes them as the tools are ordered, so I expect it may take up to a week or two before i receive them.

On a side note, has anyone else ordered from this guys before? I believe he's based in the Netherlands.
