If you have one, can you measure the opening in several ways and let me know. I am going to make one at work instead of paying $45+ for the thing. Thanks-

$45? I've seen them for like $5-$10. Just get a steering wheel puller or crank pulley puller.

? How would I use a steering wheel puller? The cv puller looks like this

Try Autozone if you have one near you. You can rent one for free there with their loan a tool program. If one's close it'll be even easier then making one yourself.

I wanted to do that but the closest one is about 30-40 min. away. I have also recently started doing an increasing number of cv jobs for people and have run into ones I could not get out on my own steam, including mine.

Use a 3- or 2-jaw puller. That's what I used. Worked fine for the CV joint. And I think I paid um... like 5 bucks for a tie rod end separator.

Dan-not sure how a 2 or 3 jaw puller would help, please explain.
This puller is for removing the axle from the trans. Sometimes the axle becomes, how should I put it, "quite snug" inside the tranny. The forked part is placed over the shaft behind the bell shaped part of the joint (the fork area is dished out to fit better), thus allowing you a good surface to slam against with the slide hammer to remove the axle.

I shove this little flat bar metal thing in there and pop it out...it alwasy work similar to what picture there was above

Oh sorry, I got mixed up with another thread where the guy was trying to get the axle out of the hub.

So far I've never not been able to get one out with a long prybar and hammer, but I would still like to get one of those. They're pretty nice, and fast.

Three jaw puller is what I used. I took the outer part of the axle off and grabbed it right at the joint part on the inside. Took some time to get it exactly where it needed to be to grab on enough to pull it out, but once I got it on there it only took a few slams with the slide hammer and it was out.
