I Forge Iron

67 Ford Flatter

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine has a 1966 Ford pickup that he refurbished. In the process he bought a 67 Ford frame and used the transmission in his truck. He stored the 67 frame in my barn and last weekend we set out taking the front end components apart. We took one of the hubs off the front end and as I was inspecting it I saw a tool I've been needing. Sliced a bit off on the porta band and ground it flat. It is 2" in diameter, should serve as a decent flatter.

Very true sir. 

The hub also has two holes were a 5/8" bolt (IIRC) passed through. I am thinking of slicing through the center on the long axis in order to have a short round swage. Then I am planning on drill varying sized holes in the section where I cut my "flatter" from for a bolster. If I have enough area, I want to drill 3/8" through 3/4", stepping up in 1/8" increments.
