I needed to remove a couple hubs from their axles to send to "olcowhand'. The axle hubs were already out of the Trans., and one of our day laborers thought they needed to be out in the scrap pile, for over 2 years. I tried to press them out, even with heat, they didn't want to come apart. So I decided to drill them out in the lathe.

 

I first chucked them up in the 4 jaw chuck and zeroed it in with a Dial Indicator..

Then I start with a 1/4" Center Drill, to make sure I'm boring in the true center of the shaft.

I then moved up to a 5/8" X 4" long Center Drill.

Once you get past the Flutes of the Drill, you can only go .100" at a time, then back out to clear the chips. Bore the shaft until you bottom the chuck out. That just makes it past the hub.

Now it's time to go big, I use a 1" Jobber Drill to bore all the way thru the hub.

Checking to make sure I am staying in the center of the axle and not drifting out to the hub.

All done boring the axle, back to the press and still needed a little heat to get it to move, it's out now.

This hub was stuck as bad as I've ever seen. :wallbanging: Now it off the axle and looks to be in good usable shape.

 

Didn't want to break in the press, Daniel wouldn't like a broken hub for his JBI!! :wave:

Slap a little manure on it before ya send it off, that way it doesn't look out of place when it arrives at his place. Either that, or slap a 'Got Milk?' sticker on it.

 

 

Yeah, go with the sticker.

Throw a little manure in the box so they can get use to the smell.

Good job at getting the axle out, now put the right shaft back in with some anti-seiz on it. Some don't have the luxury of having a lathe to do what you did.

No, and the axles were junk anyway and now will be in my shaft stock for some other project. :thumbs:

Dang Brian, if I'd known you would go to so much trouble, I'd never have brought up a thing about my wheel problem.  You went waaaaay & beyond what I would have wanted you to do!  It does look like I'll be getting some 6 bolt hubs!  Thanks SO much Brian!

Now thats just cheating. You are supposed to use a 3 jaw puller and a 3 LBS sledge and have it mushroom the end of the axle a little bit so it will make it that much harder to move. At least thats how I hade to remove one of the hubs off my D200, but I did get to reuse the axle.

I had already had them in the 50 Ton press and had them pretty warm and they didn't even think about moving.  The axles were worn beyond repair so I decided to just bore the axles out.

Great job on that Brian. Sounds lie they were pretty much welded together. Pretty scary having them in a 50 ton press and them not budging!

I hate attempting to press things so tight like these hubs.  Many times you break the part, and even if it breaks loose, many times you need a change of underwear from the explosive sound it makes when they finally break free.
