Hi, no problem. I'm West Hull; you can borrow mine if you want. When are you doing the job?
You could pick up/meet up or I can maybe drop it off. I'm going to Goole one day next week

I have used it with success on both hubs. It does take a fair amount of amount of force on the wheel nuts for it to work. I tried with various dead blow hammer and rubber mallets but in the end had to use a good sized engineer hammer.

A job better done with old/worn nuts not new or refreshed ones.

I invested in the Kelvedon Hub puller. It is a substantial piece of kit.
Using a chrome/brass spinner to remove a stuck hub like the sjs tool didn't seem the right thing to do to me.
It is more expensive though.

Alan, I've been looking for one of those hub pullers. I used to have one and it worked really well. Thanks for the link - I've just bought one from the Kelvedon website.
