    4.75 inch hub nut socket

    I have already made several hub nut sockets in the past but I didn't have one that fit my forklift. While I might remove the nut by whatever means I have available, when re installing I'm going to make a socket if I don't have one that fits.
    This one was one of the simplest to make I used a piece of 5 inch well casing pipe. Hex shaped one end on my anvil then cut it to length and drilled cross holes to use a bar for turning it

    That will work! Kind of handy to have good quality pipe! I don't have anything that large. You have me thinking Frank.
