Hack n' Tap SYE Drill Jig

Anyone have a jig to drill the hole in the output shaft for a hack n tap sye they're looking to get rid of for cheap? I can't justify spending $30 for it new. Thanks!

No need for the jig... Cut the output shaft then slide the yoke on... Drill in the center of the center hole of the yoke.... There you go, just saved you the worst $30 you would have spent

How did you cut the shaft? Did you put it in gear and hold the cutting wheel still and let the jeep do the work?

Exactly... make sure you're cutting against whatever the direction the shaft is spinning. It works GREAT with a clean cut!

Put it in reverse so that it spins the opposite direction of the grinder. Cutting goes quick and easy. Aaand it leaves a tiny point in the exact middle of the shaft.

I figured since I started this thread, and couldn't fin a jeeper who has used it, have any of you used the dirt bound offroad HnT with the yoke instead of the flange, if so, what do you think about it? I'm thinking of going that route because I have a 98 and it would only be 99 bucks for it

Thanks. You're one of the few using it. It seems like a good kit and great price. I think I'll be going this route
