I bought a Rail Rider tool last year along with the Pro Axle Press. I enjoy using them, and I'm getting good results. But the two tools are starting to deform a bit from the hammer blows... am I hitting too hard? Is a rubber mallet preferred or maybe a softer brass hammer? Any reason why these two tools weren't made from stiffer steel? Thanks,
The tool still works, but I was worried about wearing it out. I used it at our District races on Saturday, someone brought in a car w/ 30 degree bent axle. We used the axle press to straighten, then the RR to re-bend correctly. No vise available there, but will use vise at home workshop to straighten/bend axles. Thanks!
