Yep. And the fact that it's cheap lets you try some things with it you might not do otherwise. What I especially like is that tapered inner flange. One time, I filed the edge down to a pretty thin and sharp edge in order to get it back behind something that had almost no gap at all. Put the two halves in place, then used clamps on the two places where the bolts go to clamp it down and draw it together. It wedged its way in enough to get a bite that allowed a small pull, then tightened them down some more and kept working it until they fit all the way in. It's a nice little rig.
Nice pulley puller, Johnny. If you ever come across another one cheap, snag it and let me know. That would be really useful.
