    Re: Home made tools!

    Here is a little contraption I put together to stand off my torch and also use as a guide to follow a straight edge on a long cut. It fits perfect on a Smith because the clamp bolt hits the middle tube just right.

    Ingenuity certainly welcome on this thread - WOW a lot of outside the box thinking going on. Has anyone thought about taking their ideas mainstream?

    There's a lot of quality here, great to see.

    Re: Home made tools!

    I've made tools for our shop and they've sure come in handy. The press was built about ten years ago and gets used all the time. I built the metal bending breaks and a tubing notcher. all come in handy at times.

    Building breaks to go in the press is a cool idea

    Re: Home made tools!

    Hello again 4shorts, saw this in another post that you responded too and realized this is probably the correct place for including these sorts of things. I've got an item or two that might be of some interest to a few folks on here. Don't know how many pictures will be allowed per post so this might take a few to include. Best regards, Allan

    Re: Home made tools!

    The little hand held drill press my father used to make at Grumman, and bring them home. It was good for hobbies that you wanted the drill hole to look straight. Heck we had no drill press years ago.












    These are the oil hardening slugs I use to make the drill guides.






    Sincerely,

    I had all the other tools. Except for the angle with the hole in it. Very cool.

    Wow!!!!! Some very interesting tools. But not the monster axe!! I bet that axe when it hits something hard must jar the teeth out of your mouth with the vibrations coming back through that handle.

    Re: Home made tools!

    There is no way I would use that axe, besides, it's not very effective to put the weight in the handle, just makes it harder to swing.

    Here is the pipe vise I arranged while I complete the comp. air plumbing for the shop. I had the 4 jaw sitting in a drawer, the jaws are not suited for machine work, so now it gets put to use....better than $150 for a ridgid vise.

    If dowel is a bit small shim up to size with electrical tape.
    Even easier use a tap a and when it hits the crank it will push it out take it to auto zone and see if they can find one with threads

    Re: Home made tools!

    I made these so that I could square up large tube frames without having to get someone to hold the end of my tape. It takes a little bit of layout work at the beginning but not having to bug someone/wait for help is worth it.

    Na. It was one of those tools that I built out of desperation and just kept on using it.It sure works well. I remember back a few years ago i posted it on here and I was getting PM's asking me to make them but when your doing these things with non CNC equipment it takes to long to make so you couldn't make any money building them.

    Also built a pressure sand blaster a few years ago and the thing don't stop. most all my restorations start our seeing the blaster. Glad you liked the notcher

    Re: Home made tools!

    Hey there's some nifty stuff here.

    I searched the forum and didn't see any Z-Squares or tri-squares.

    I made these after seeing Ernie Lukmeilers on the usenet years ago...
