Arbor Press accessories tools

So I bought a Framco 3-1/2 arbor press with a ratcheting handle. Other than pressing arbors I find most jobs press difficult and time consuming because I don't have the right fixture to hold some thing that needs pressing or the right punch to press with. I usually just cob something together which usually fights me thru the process anyway.

The most recent press job was removing 1/4" shaft brass gears from potentiometers held on with 3/32" roll pins. Drilling a new 3/32" hole thru a new 1/4" potentiometer shaft and pressing in a new 3/32" roll pin. For this job I used a small bench arbor press.

1st question is what do you like to have at your disposal for general press jobs. Pictures of common fixture or other accessory

Machine Tool Arbor Spacers

Anybody out there inventory arbor spacers in wacky thicknesses? I need four different spacers for a .875" shaft, ranging in thickness from under an inch to right around 1.250". But the exact widths aren't "nice" numbers (for example, 1.013).

I realize I have the following options, as well:
1) Make them myself (which I might end up doing)
2) Assemble a "set" of off-the-shelf spacers to equal the desired amount (however this is a production environment where changeover is key, so reducing parts helps maintain friendliness between us engineers and the tool crib guys).
