Built this tonight to drive cylinder liners out of a DT436. Should work well for putting the liners back in too...





Can you spot the liner that is not like the others?

Make sure you use the right soap re installing the new ones.

I was planning on lubing up the o-rings well with vaseline on re-install. That's usually my go-to shop re-assembly lube ! I've used it for automatic transmissions, hydraulic seals, etc. What would you recommend for these liners?

We have a slide hammer that uses a 3/4" pipe as the main tube. Took a 3/4" to 1/2" pipe reducer and welded it to the adjusting screw on a pair of vise grips and did basically the same thing as pictured.

I'd go with a 3" dia cylinder for maximum flatness... I built one with a 2" dia cylinder and the slot I have them fall through isn't quite wide enough at times, so I have to re-crush them... Had a 3" air cylinder to make another, but ended up using it on a tire spreader.

I know on John Deere they make a special liner o-ring substance they call soap. If you don't use it you'll risk damaging the o-ring and oil/coolant mixing as well as coolant into the cylinder. Then redoing it all over again.

the donkey.. hydrostatic, hydraulic steering, power dumping garden tractor based off a bolens H16. you can sit and ride forward or ride backward with a knee on the seat, a foot on the pad and your hand on the rollbar for steep downhills or tight trailer dolleying with forklift like steering. the one stick is a 4 way that controls all movement. it also has a 3pt hitch with hydraulic lift. the bed can dump up into a truck bed, and was built to be a cement distribution dumper, thats why the spout shape. its water tight. the 3pt is to run an eventual rototiller for dumping manure into the tillers path for a future mini farm














deere 140H3



i made the hydraulic dozer or plow blade (has lockout pin for the snow trip funtion) with hydraulic grapple/root rake combo




the pin on counterweighted drawbar

Not near as cool or brilliant as most of the stuff in this thread, but here's a spanner wrench I made for the side adjuster nuts on a 9" 3rd. It's just a couple pieces of 1" flat bar and some 1/4" allen bolts for the pivot and pins.

Not sure what to call it, but I built this over the weekend to help with some sheet metal welding I've been doing. Some jerk shot a bunch of .22 holes in the floorboards of my Scout:


I'm working solo, and a lot of them are pretty hard to get to both sides of with only 2 hands, so I made a spacer and attached a chunk of 1/4" thick copper to a switchable magnet. Acts as a backer to weld up against for filling larger holes, the weld doesn't stick to the copper.


Worked really well, will easily hold on vertical surfaces and even upside down

The boy hasn't arrived yet (2.5 weeks) and I suspect it'll be a while before he's helping me out in the garage

I was using the chunk of copper with a weight on it, and welding from underneath the panel, but damn overhead welding sucks balls.

Built a collet rack tonight for my milling machines. Made good use of the HF knockout punch set and my a dimple die... It will hang on the wall between two milling machines so I have easy access to all the tools for both of them.

My brother in law was working on his racecar and using a crank turning tool (readily available from a lot of vendors for about $25...) well let it be said that you should not leave the breaker bar in the tool when you pop the starter!
I chopped one from 3/16 plate...
