    Excellent pictures.

    These days I much prefer Challis bushings and grip screws.

    What would be the consequences for the frame if a staked bushing was removed using a screwdriver?
    When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind. [Lord Kelvin]

    Niemi ,,,,,,, I’ve not had a problem removing any bushing. The above swaged bushing was removed from a cast frame without negative results. Although, I use a screwdriver (#240-5) that encloses the entire bushing.

    That's good to know. Thanks. I was thinking the swaging might enlarge the threaded holes in the frame too much.

    I'm judicious as to the force used to swage.
