I have a flycutter, Berg Style, but have never used(but it is used)
I have the cutting/milling attachment which has an adjustable cutter
to open up the heads/case
and a centering tool for 92mm
along with a Berg hemi cutter(still in the bubble pack)
I am going to order the centering tool from Berg for 85.5 heads and
centering tool for the stock case....Berg had different description and part number
also have the drill press, and now to
butcher an old head .....I think the magic to this is getting everything
centered, lined up and square with the mating surface of the head and
cylinder, and the depth of the cut....and slowly cut away

Trans Jig, very few have the knowledge to successfully rebuilding trans-axles......
more so today.....a lost art of mechanics....so very few rebuild today.

When I operated my shop, I did the usual: nose cones and related
with changing out axles(swing axle models) and flipping the ring
and pinion for reduction gear type 2's(donor type 1 trans-axle)....did everything but tear-down
and rebuild....for I had so many good used transaxles lying around...
so fast and cost efficient to replace with good used....no come backs

I had another VW shop back in the 70's call me one day to come over
diagnose what was wrong with a trans-axle that he just installed....
only had one gear forward and 4 in reverse.....you can guess the rest ??

I can still remembered the dishearten look on his face :o when I told him
what he had installed.....

I don't actually luv any of my tools, but I am very fond on most of them. That said, I can & will do bodily harm to anyone that wants to change ownership of these tools. ;)

I look at it this way, if you want to work on something, buy the frikkin tool for the job. I put a shift lever in my hog couple years back. Bought $350 worth of tools to do the job. another ;)

No you can't borrow my tools, not out of the love for them, but the love of the money to replace them. I used to help anyone with anything, anywhere, anytime, too many people want to eff you over now days. another ;)

I still help some from time to time, but that trust is earned, not given. no ;)
