INCREDIBLE!!

Thumbs up Re: Home made workshop tools

Polacko,
Very nice work on the workshop tools. That helve hammer is a work of art. I've worked with some pretty primitive versions of that tool (the basic design has been around for a thousand years ), and I can see that yours is designed and built for control and precise work. What material are you using for your dies?

Geo.

Been using 4340 Bar. Holding up well with some minor repolishing from time to time. Made a linear stretching die for it a while back, works tits!

Not exactly a tool, but I built this starter. Makes it so much easier to tune new/broken bikes.

Yeah. Boat trailer rollers, pillow blocks and a toothed belt/pulleys. Foot switch from Harbor Freight. The front roller just rests on the shaft, the drive pulley is fixed by shaft collars welded to fender washers. Sheet metal screws throgh the washers into the ends of the roller.

I've been busy, especially with the nice weather we've been having. But, I figured I'd take a little time to post a few.

Here's a homemade trans alignment tool I whipped up a while back. I lost my original one about 20 years ago and since then I'd either borrow one or just do my fork alignment without one. You can get by without one, but they do make the job faster and easier especially if you're building a tranny from parts or even just switching lids. I buy my aluminum as scrap for a buck a pound, so I have a grand total of about 3 bucks in material into this tool. Plus a little time. Works great!

Here's another gizmo I whipped up for holding stuff while painting. It's just a simple knuckle-joint affair that rotates, which I bolt into the arm from my engine lift. It's nice because you can change elevation or set it at any angle and rotate the part 360 degrees. I also use it with shorter connecting rods between the tanks for wet sanding and buffing. The tank stand itself is just some scrap welded up and bolted to one of my old motor stands. Nothing fancy, just old junk (cheap!) re-cycled and put to work. I'm not the worlds greatest painter, and I find that helps an awful lot having the tank in a comfortable position when I'm trying to spray the bugger.





Here is a close-up picture of the knuckle joint:

How about a pre unit Triumph motor stand that also holds two spark plugs to assist in accurately bench timing the magneto. No more silly spring clamps.
