Received Jay's Tool the following Tues, priority mail. Did not get to use it until Friday. It was a pain to get the agitator plate off. The lower part of the hub assembly would not budge so I knew the basket was cemented in. I used the tool, I could feel how stuck the basket was as I cranked on the extracting bolt.
TJays tool did not flinch a bit. That stubborn tub did not have a chance, Inch by inch it crawled up the basket spindle until finally free it was. That was one of the worse rusted & corroded spindles I have seen. Whipped that Kenmore Brazos in nothing flat. That job paid for the parts, tool, & then some.
Most of all it paid for my back, that is most important. Skeptical at first because I balked at the cost of tool not thinking what the real cost would be without it. Well worth the money & now I go looking for the old style Cabrios not dreading the job anymore able to cut the time in half & can quote the job at a lower cost so as not have so many turndowns. Good money to be made with Jay's tool.
A big Thank you Jay & My wife thanks you.
