    Nifty Tool

    Crank clearance checker for the jig.

    I think something like this could be a nice little accessory jig makers could sell. I'm looking in your direction, Don.

    Nice, Joel. I've been thinking about something like that, and I think I'm going to rip your design off pretty heavily. I'll buy you a drink at the show.

    Sweet!
    I need one of those in the worst way.

    It's going take all the fun out of dimpling stuff when its back from powder though :-)

    The next step would be for pre cut pins for specific cranks.

    thanks for posting. My bb post has a cylinder I use for setting up the seat tube holder. Your post made me realize there are a couple of uses for it I hadn't thought of. Not just crank clearance, but also the FD braze on.

    It's a bit like the one we did a while. Fits an anvil jig and you just slap the crank on

    We can't do clearance for the non-drive crank though. Would be a nice addition

    and we also have a cassette and disc mounted on the dummy axle so everything can be checked without removing from the jig

    Now that's nifty. Beats the crap out my templates cut from a manila folder.

    This be mine............not as nifty but it has worked well for me in that I can make sure everything clears......cranks, rings, and tire.

    First time actually using the tool. Good thing too, since I didn't have the crank in hand and the CS needed a little relief.

    What would "acceptable" clearance be? Out of saddle masher....2-4mm for deflection and chain?
