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:

Here's some crimping pliers


Thought this was kinda cool, airplane building use, but could come in handy

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...

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

Was about to build a trueing stand of "usual" design this weekend. Seeing this definetely changed my mind and saved a few hours of fabbing....Thanks! Gonna modify it a bit to use it as a balancing stand also. Using a hunk of 3" angle insteade of tube cause I have it available....Thanks again.
