DIY Headset Cup Installation Tool

After polishing the headset for the Schiwnn Paramount, I fabricated a simple headset installation tool.  Its basically a threaded rod with nuts and fender washers on the end.  TIghten with two wrenches to press it into place.  The fork cup sits on a block of wood and was pressed in with a PVC pipe and mallet.
