^nice puller.


Needed a faster and easier way to make the vice appear/dissapear on demand.

don't know if it's a new idea but my shopmate suggested it and I pieced it together.

Got anymore pics of that cart and how you structured it? I dig that and the idea has been floating in my head for a while now; particularly with that hub bearing concept. I'd be grateful to see some pics of the bottom side of it.

Took my shitty craftsman creeper and made it slightly less shitty by adding some shitty roller blade wheel casters from harbor freight. Rolls much better over debris now and is rated for 1,200 pounds

Check out this hacked up mess I found in a old toolbox I used as a kid...it's caps I made to pressurize a 2-stroke expansion chamber and pop out dents once heated! I'm thinking I was around 12 years old when I built these with a old drill press and some scraps , and from what I remember they worked great.

Constantly changing grinding and wire wheels some days. Only have 1 grinder at work and sometimes being in a tight spot with the wheel jammed on. Took a wrench from ones we have multiples from all the tools we buy and ground it to fit the wire wheel size and welded it to the grinder wrench

Those look pretty awesome... how did they clamp on? Looks like a box of jigs that we got from a machine shop auction years and years ago! I'm sure the stuff in there was useful at one time, but god only knows for what! Lol.

Made some chile roasters: both are 10" in diameter (the largest the grill will accomodate) and balanced. One is 15" long and the other is 23" in length.

I had one of the store bought version and found the damn thing would flip on unlevel ground with a load and turning. So I did an axle mod and moved the rear tires out 3-4" on each side. Now everyone borrows the wagon.

She was. . . not happy.

They had four pinch bolts ..each at 90 to each other that kinda clamped the caps on each end, also has some kind of rubber to act as a seal. You needed to be cautious when clamping on cheap pipes that lacked a welded on billet ring as you could collapse the chamber ends pretty easily. The caps didn't need to be too tight because 20-25 PSI of air and a little rosebud action and all but the worst dents came right out.
