Abstract : This report describes how an assembly tool utilizes a tubular bar to support and torque a pronged disk-shaped work holding member on one end and a socket disposed in a knurled handle end. An alignment wheel is axially fixedly positioned on the bar proximate to the work holding member. A movable alignment ring slidably disposed on the bar intermediate the handle end of the bar and the alignment wheel is used in conjunction with the alignment wheel to help guide, insert and tighten a threaded burster retainer work piece in a projectile case while torque is applied to the tubular support bar.
