A few years back I pulled the clamp off the stem of my tuf-neck in order to re-anodize. Now that it's looking fresh I'm stuck finding a place to help repress the clamp back on once it's threaded.

Does anyone know a shop that has the knowledge and capabilities of how this is executed and/or is familiar with the rebuild?

Since I pulled it apart I have moved cross country to NYC and when I approach a shop here they aren't even sure what I'm showing them.

If you know a spot in the NY area that would be amazing, if not I'll ship it out.


I appreciate the help.

Cheers,

Mike

The shaft/quill only can go in one way. Then, the big bolt tightens down on it. No idea why you'd need a shop. Quill, base, bolt all that are in play.

Only because I was under the impression that in addition to threading, it needed to be pressed/set. If not I can crank it down. I just did not want to miss a step especially, if I plan on riding it.

I've never had one that once apart, I couldn't get back together. Some far tighter than others, but, nothing a few taps with a rubber mallet won't overcome. I don't think a press would be needed, except in an uber-rare case.
