Default Sleeve-Style Ring Compressor

Anyone ever used one?

Seems like it would be easier if it works the way it's supposed to. Tapers down to bore size.

total seal sells something in the middle that is adjustable with a hose clamp might be more practical for the average joe for rebores, they work pretty good

That is exactly why I wanted to try a sleeve-style compressor. Countless times I would have a oil ring catch the sleeve on the way down.

I've used both kinds and they've both been fine. You have to be careful no matter which one you're using though. I bought a tapered one from Summit and then the regular old clamp style from O'reilly's.
I think I have these two.
