Use a big hammer with small piece of 2x4 stud against the cap.

A garage should have a 3 lb shot filled deadblow hammer too. This one from the same tool store has served me well.
The smaller brass/plastic hammer in this pic broke off the brass part while hammering wheel studs out of a hub and I glued it back on with JB Weld. Still works OK but thats why I recently bought the bigger brass hammer.

I don't think I've ever had a bill that was as high as $18 at HF... Except that time I bought my bead blast cabinet.

Most I ever spent there was 80 bucks for one of their pressure washers. It works good for a home unit.
Every time I go there I find other things I have a hard time resisting because the price is low and I figure I'll use it someday.
Maybe I should get a job there... lol... just kidding.

thanks for the hammer suggestions Jim, I do need a brass hammer

I've tried to pretty much have sworn off Harbor Freight after buying a few things from them that are more model tools than actual usable tools

angle grinder... side grab handle disintegrated 1st use

cutting wheels that shattered upon slightest contact with lint

etc.

it's a toss up, if you're picky about what to get there and what to avoid - some of it can be OK as you noted (well, 1 out of 2 heh heh)

I just got this flyer, maybe I'll do some shopping tomorrow:

That funny stuff Paul

Regarding the cut off wheels at harbor freight, I use a die grinder a lot and the cut off wheels I get there in packages of 4 or 5 work just as well and last just as long as any others I've used.

The straight die grinders I have from there that were on sale for 10 bucks just keep on going and havn't had any problems.. and I have a lot of experience over the last 30 years using die grinders with carbide burs and cut off wheels.
A 90 degree die grinder I got there wore the bearings out quickly though.

Some of their stuff is good and some of it isn't.

Paulito, congratulations on the successful modeling gig (the Moron Lamp, of course)! I hope you were well paid for your outstanding work!

sorry I should have clarified - was bits in their "dremel" set... rechargeable... which... holds a charge for about 17seconds 8-)

I did buy a sledge there not too long ago - hard to muff THAT up... even in China!

The moron light reminds me of an LED video light I have that fits into the hot shoe of a DSLR camera. The face on the guy wearing it cracks me up.

I have some extra bungee cords too and they come in handy... lol
Used to keep a couple strapped over the seat of a BMW motorcycle I used to ride all the time for holding a six pack or whatever on the seat behind me.. even a dive tank sideways on the seat with 3000psi in it once!

Paul, that's you in the pics above? I've seen the lower one before, but didn't realize that was you.

I see that you obviously had that picture taken prior to having your implants installed, Paulina!

allllllllllllllllrighty then...

Used my 38mm socket from my old //S8 oil filter housing slid over the threaded bolt into the cap (as an impromptu "slide hammer") and beat on it w/ my 5lb sledge and off the caps came - woot.

Time for beddyby / beauty sleep (which doesn't appear to be werking)... looked and found the hole in the outer hub to allow allen access to horseshoe 'nut' - duh - knew there was some secret handshake I was forgetting from last time I'd done this. Damn do I need to copy my bud's manual 8-)...
