tool for Ransome Ajax for back lapping

Hi All

         I have a Ransome Ajax 12 inch MK5 , in the manual it highlights a tool that you would use to aid back lapping which screws into one of the cogs. Obviously these are rare now and have been lost or discarded. I am sure i saw on here some one who made a tool? For the life of me i cannot seem to find the thread now? 

Has anyone made this tool or made something similar?

Regards Dave

If it helps, NM posted some

If it helps, NM posted some information about a Mk5 (?) on 2nd June. Later on in that discussion, the matter of a tool for helping the back-lapping process came up. Hillsider then helpfully identified the thread which would fit the hole on the roller gear wheel and I posted a couple of pictures of the "dual purpose" handle on my Mk3. These may help you make one up - useable if not original!

Good luck
