    PSA - $46 headset press

    Nashbar came out with a new headset press that does 1-1/2" headsets, and so their old 1-1/8" headset presses are on sale for $50. Plus at this time you get an additional 10% off, so $46. Plus shipping of course.

    I swear I don't work for Nashbar. I'm just trying to make all of them go away because I am too broke to buy one, and the temptation is killing me.

    Or you could just do the threaded rod or long bolt and washers and nuts trick.

    I tried that, didn't work so well. Kept going in on an angle.

    Yeah, I'm all about the homemade $3 version. If you had trouble keeping it aligned, throw another washer in that's the same outer diameter as the inner diameter of the cup. This will keep it centered on the rod.
