yeah that welder.......

Red Loctite will work just as well on clean threads, as long as you don't hit it with a torch.

I have never come across cups that can't be fitted with a bit of gentle work with a hammer and a wooden block, taper the entry first and grease.

Humor yourself and make one,you will see how sweet it works. and as for the weld that is just for ease of operation

"Dammit, Jim! I'm a Bicycle Mechanic, not a Doctor!" I say that sometimes to customers. The ones that look old enough to remember Lt Uhura on Star Trek.

Yeh way to go. Nice tool.

I made a similar tool for compressing motorcycle shock springs, using two 4X4 plates with U cut out of them and four rods.

BTW for those that do not have a welder use two nuts and lock them together. That's how engine studs can be pulled.
Never Give Up!!!
