Clearly, I’ve never done one of those so that explains why I didn’t know the difference between removing the springs and the whole assembly – typical. ;) Anyway, last week I was looking at my staking set and found the two punches, but I don’t see any numbers on the stumps. Do your stumps have numbers on them and if so, where are they to be found?

Another question… if those assemblies are pushed out could one use the micrometer on the staking set to measure the depth before pushing it out? Of course that would imply that the end shake was correct to start with – I guess there’s no garuntee on that.

Thanks for the info on the spring tools – I guess I need a set of those as well. One other thing… if you don’t have those punches and stumps, you can find these on eBay here.

Tom,

my staking set only has numbers on the punches not on the stumps :(.

Thanks for the links to ebay for those items. They are only a little bit cheaper than the new Incabloc set from cousins. They will end up more expensive with shipping to Europe included. So I guess that buying those from Cousins would be the better option. Using the Seitz with the micrometer is probable the best solution anyhow. Still wondering if I would buy the Incabloc set or try to use a hollow punch.
Well it looks like one can always buy extra gear for this hobby…
