I was thinking finer threads would make it easier to turn.
With the big benefit of being able to do it on the car.
How long is the threaded piece?
I don't have exact measurements, but I could get them. I just eyeballed it and cut a section of threaded rod off the length that I bought. I've got another 2' of rod left, since it's only sold in long peices. Honestly, unless you spent some good money and got the hardened stuff, a finer thread would strip out IMO. I had to use a bar on the end of my vice grips to get the proper leverage. Once it 'pops', it's easy though .
I like this little tool, and I don't have to remove the hub from the car to do the job if I don't want to. Makes future bearing swaps much less of a headache job. I like the freezer tip though, I think I'll give that a shot with the replacement bearings.
I'd just like to point out that I didn't invent this, I just copied it. I've gotta say though...it's super easy to build, and you could probably get away with spending less than I did if you were crafty.
