    While it isn't as good as @Doug Briggs new toy, as a boot fitter, this was a nice little (and very inexpensive) score. A nice addition to the rest of the tools. It was missing the handle so I got an 18"x1" pipe from Home Depot, now to extend the arms from 8" to 12"...we will see how good @Andy Mink's welding skills are.

    What is it and what did that poor boot do to you?

    You have to look behind the press to see the all-important cuff expander tools.

    I now get the importance....and versatility of this tool. (And how much it would rock to have one in your own garage.) Sweet.

    This is next to the current design:

    As it sits it is tough to get into the toe box. I am hoping that we can take the arm off completely and make it adjustable like the blue one.
