Great thread!
Worlds simplest wheel truing stand. If you`re just building a single or more similar wheels there`s really no need to go further than this. A piece of rod (old wheelaxle) welded onto a piece of square tubing:

Simple press. Not very sturdy but good enough to press the crank out of a shovel

I made a sweet metal hammer out of one of these gas canister caps...



All you have to do is put a peice of one inch OD pipe through the holes in the cap and weld it up, I used about a foot long handle and it works great as a hammer and as a dolly too. The best thing is that it cost me $10 from tractor supply and took about 5 minutes to make. Already straightened out an old fender and made a seat pan with it. Works like a champ...

The Three phase converter...Holy shit.

Its for welding exhaust tubing together. The open spot in the clamp is where you make your spot welds.

Some torque converters made from sockets and wrenches bought at a pawn shop for $11. Makes retorquing head bolts on a Shovel a breeze.

There's a lot of them out there, but here's a tubing bender I built:



Pay no attention to the tubing in that photo, I just used thin wall tubing to make sure it would work. It built my frame like a champ. Plus I really liked having the air/hydraulic ram, super easy to get exact and repeatable bends.

I made a pretty handy litle invention today. i made a flange that mounts the top half of a shopvac directly onto a 55 gallon drum. definately decreases the power but still works great

My simple valve guide removal tool. A long shank bolt that fits nicely in the guide and a nut ground to the O.D. of the guide. Grab you BFH and start hammering!
