My name is Mike, and I wrench at R+E Cycles in Seattle. We have been doing some overhauling of our tools recently, and are hoping to update our crown race setter. The Park Tool CRS-1 seems to be the industry standard, but it's bulky and hard to store. We were looking at the Hozan C-445 tool, which uses a clamp/threaded press instead of a hammer/punch to put on the race. Does anyone here have experience with the Hozan tool? If not, are there other recommendations or experiences with different crown race setters? Thanks!
In my past life I used something similar to the hozan tool in the automotive works they work well , I would have bushings made for the tool out of aluminum , just as I did for my head set press for king head sets it made life easy in a very busy high end shop
