Thanks! I used your tutorial to setup my first diff! Then my dog knocked it over and it chipped the housing where the adjuster threads in... Bought a completed spooled setup from Marlin and an additional housing to build in the future. Glad it will be there when I need it again!

You can use mild steel if you know what you are doing, I have one. But there is risk, that someone new wouldn't know the difference and use a punch that is two hard. For a beginner or someone who doesn't know, its better to use a brass drift and clean the chips out.
