Your avatar makes it hard to focus on your setup! The assembly must be free-standing and the vise isn't needed for operation.

the speed is variable,it looks scary but it's basicly is a weak lathe without all the stuff around the chuck haha,max speed is 1200rpm but to that i can go down to 0,5 rpm,the torque is very low and belt slip is also an factor,when doing the rims (swapping the outer)
the engine isn't used,remove belt and turn by hand with indicator clock,turn,adjust,turn adjust weld,turn check,you get it haha

Here are are couple of special purpose tools that I cobbled up out of stuff I had laying around. The internal expanding wrench is made out of a tail pipe expander and I used it for installing intake nipples into pan heads. You can really snug them up nice without boogering up the nipple.

The odd looking C-clamp thing is a rivet tool I use for installing the rivets in the nipples. It does a nice job of drawing things together with out putting any un-necessary stress on the head,

The round chunk of steel is a internal anvil used as a back-up inside the nipple for peening rivets. You can see how it has a sort of a "cam" shape to it so you can insert it inside the nipple with the rivet in place and then rotate it, so it locks the rivet in place for peening.







I have damn near as much fun working on these old bikes as I do riding them!

Sprocket socket I made. Picked the socket up at rural king for 7 bucks I think. Cut it and welded in a piece of pipe. Works great.

I hate getting abrasive dust all over my shop so I built this trolley to get my various dust generators outside where they do less mess...


The box stores extra belts, wheels, rouge, etc..

^ that is a slick setup... my dust generators are on old rims, like badassbrutis' vice stand. stable, but a bitch to drag out of the shop. i'm gonna start putting casters on everything.

Another great source for inexpensive casters, that already come with a platform, are Harbor Freight car dollies:

http://www.harborfreight.com/2-piece...ies-67511.html

I own several sets and have built all sorts of mobile crap using them.

Also, anybody local to me that is interested in HEAVY, stable bases for building stands, I have several 18-24" diameter, 3-4" thick pieces of steel that are drops from scatter shield burnouts, that I would part with.

Same idea, but I used a truck rim and a piece of pipe. There's a foot lever in the base that lowers 4 swivel casters; this raises the unit 1/8", just enough to unload the weight. One handed move with the landing gear lowered...
