Special Axle Tool

Hey Guys,

Does anyone know where I can find a tool similar to this one:

It's used to pull a half shaft into the wheel hub. I'm trying to find one on the cheap or as a loaner but it's been difficult.

Any help would be appreciated!

If you're having difficulty.
Try using a pick and a small flat blade screwdriver to clean out the splines on the axle. then wash in turps or kerosene or flush with WD40 to get rid of the grit and sticky grease.
Do the same to the splines of the hub.
Then use a triangular file to eliminate any burrs. Flush again.
Then lube with a thin layer of moly grease and attempt reinstallation.
