Alignment Steering Wheel


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!
