    I admire your repair,,,but I have to ask a couple of questions,,,I have the same puller,,,had it for over 40 + years,,,used it a whole bunch of times and it still looks like new,,,your puller looks like it was stored in a bucket of salt water,,,the chrome is off it etc, etc,,,how is that possible,,,,lol....it must have an interesting history...

    You are right. It is much older than me I just turned 18. It was in a toolbox under water in a poll barn. It was almost scrap metal a few years ago. Break was because of me, it is a strong puller I just hit it right. Dad normally deal with rust.

    It's one piece again, but I don't know that I would trust it. Gonna have to heat treat it to get the hardness back in it. It's gonna break again, and the weld will pull away from the metal - weak point created by the heat from the weld.
