Alignment Steering Wheel

Holder


I made a steering wheel holder to use when aligning my Miatas.  The tool was fairly easy to make using a large caulking gun I bought at Ace Hardware for $9.00.  The remaining parts were made from a Miata jack handle.


First I cut off the caulk tube holder leaving the handle and plunger.  


I used a torch to heat the jack tool and bend it into shape for the steering wheel support.  I used my gas welder to attach the steering wheel support to the caulking gun handle.   


Then I used some gas line that I split about 2" then left about 3/4" and split 2" to make it go into the cradle part of the steering wheel holder.  A little WD-40 and it finally went on.  


A little primer to cover the burned areas from welding and the big part was ready.  


I had a 7" round piece of plywood already from my welding cart project so it became the seat rest for the tool.


This is how it looks installed.

Sorry, but I did not take pictures as I made it.  It was too hot.


I have a set of Flyin Miata Hub Plates on the way, so this tool will come in handy!
