All set yager, just deleted our links to your builds. I did keep some bookmarks to your stuff in my personal bookmarks folder; I have an autobody cart on my project list, and yours is a good example.

I agree that there are plenty of sites who are re-publishing stuff without correct links or credit. It's not by accident; they're doing it willfully and maliciously, to make money off of your hard work. If you don't act aggressively against them, you're their bitch. It sucks that we sometimes get lumped in with them, but if you can't take a few punches, whether you deserve them or not, you don't belong in forums.

made this out of a old battery tray and a chiense socket



for a chevy aveo, you need to spin the entire waterpump for the timing belt adjustment. actually a pretty easy timing belt once i figured out how to do it. needless to say no one had a 46mm (or whatever size it was) crows foot laying around

Why would I want to conceal anything? I'm being completely honest and transparent, and I have nothing to hide.

You're not trying to do me a "solid" anything. You're trying to bully me by typing profanities at me on the internet, and it's not working.
I agree with him that you should probably register with a proxy.

Otherwise, I like the concept of your site. Bunch of stuff there that I never would have found otherwise.

Nice, I have made a few similar over the years, just enough to work.

Recently modified a 7/8th 12 pt bc my O2 sensor socket would not do what I needed it to.

Custom offset, flare wrench- sure got just the thing, just need my torch and cut off wheel.

Hey, if it works, it doesn't matter if it's made out of pine cones and shoe strings.
It's all Legos man, works the same when you build with pcs from random kits vs the specific set. If I wanted a lil more flair all I have to do is get dueling to whip up a badass cabinet and lid. :grinpimp:


I should move the filter inside the drum. Would clean that up and drips & spills during changes wouldn't matter.

Electric Horse

I hate small engines, unless they're driving 2 or 4 wheeled death machines.

So anyway, it once tilled a garden now it pulls junk that doesn't move.
Plan to add an accessory drive so it can do other things. Switching to a 3.8hp DC motor from the 2.5hp 3ph someday.

those troy bilt's are ridiculous money, my grandpa's one's got a kohler on it that idles at about a hundred rpm, sounds real neat. All it gets is the (externally mounted!) points filed once a year, starts on the second pull...

strap a tire on the front and it'll push, too,
angle it so it lifts the car some and it gets you all the tractions

Planned to add a caster wheel to bolt in place of the tine drive. 150lbs of lead and a central pull point. But will give the push idea a try. :idea:

2500 new but the new models made by MTD are garbage. See classics on cl for 600 in decent condition.

ogre has been a member of john's homemadetools site for as long as i have here
it's another useful tool site like this one (i only post in the tools and electrical threads)
linking to other sites is what the internet is about, don't want your stuff linked, don't post on the internet
