Centering tool for round stock and linkages.

Recommended Posts

Friend of mine ran up this neat little item that is perfect for center drilling round shafts in sizes from 3/16" to 1/2".  There is a 'V' notch for larger round stock.  This jig allows you to drill a pilot hole quickly.  


If you've ever changed out the brake rods on a mechanical brake system you know how many cotter pins have to be drilled.  BRASS CAR guys should definitely have one.  I've also found it very useful for throttle linkage and just anything that requires a cotter pin.  It also came in handy when I had to make odd-ball clevis pins.  The dimensions are 1" x. 3".  It is hardened.  I paid $60 for mine.


Walt Federline in Frederick, Maryland, is making them.  His number is 301-695-9110.  www.federlineproducts.com/


I used it yesterday to pin a sleeve on a shaft.  Easy as pie.

Walt Federline sold out his stock and is wondering if there is an interest in making more.  One of the guys made all new linkages for his 1910 REO and he told me it was a piece of cake making all the cotter pin holes.
