Aircraft wheel hub compressor

Assembling aircraft wheels incorporating the tyre can be extremely difficult without dedicated and expensive equipment. The Hanley Smith Wheel Hub Compressor enables two halves of the wheel hubs to be aligned using the podging bars. Then simply using the Hub Compressor applies pressure pulling the two halves together for easy bolt-up.
