Free lower ball joint installation tool

Free, free, free.
Recently performed a total rebuild of a front suspension on a 1991 420 SEL. W126. I made a lower ball joint installation tool from a piece of Sch. 40 CS pipe with a 1/2" plate welded to the top. Its rude, crude and unpainted. But, it works great.
Here's the deal. As I will never use it again. (Famous last words) I'm letting it out as a free loaner tool. You need it I'll ship it if you pay the freight. Then, hang on to it untill someone else needs it. Then same deal, pass it on. It can be used with a hydraulic press or, simply use a large hitty, poundy, bangy thing (5 pound hammer in laymans terms) like I did.
