              my stuff is basic
              R CRAFTS stuff is perfect as he is a perfection lunatic. said my stand isnt worthy of his motor.
              he made me the stand just for my freddy styled z50 as it has a motor he built for me with used takegawa parts.

                Looks like my Tonelli needs some more upgrades. My speedo max only reads 116.

                  Built this old vice 20 years ago. Needed something that would open out to wider than any of the vices available for sale. This is half offset and opens out to about 12 inches or around 300mm. Being fabricated rather than cast means I can give it a real hiding with the hammer etc when the need arises and over the years its had plenty of them and it hasn't broken yet. The extra opening lets me hold much bigger items between the jaws and up until I got my press I used it for pressing most of my bearings both in and out plus heaps of other jobs.

                      Bead breaker

                      Made this up in my go karting days but have used it on rideon mowers, wheel barrows as well as the odd rusted003.jpg z50 tyre.

                          Gday guys,
                          new to the forum and bike mechanics in general. This is the cheap and nasty $10 Valve tool i made using a clamp and a 16mm socket, took 5 min to cut the socket with a angle grinder and a cutoff wheel. Worked really well for what it is, didnt cause any damage

                            Made these a while back and they both work pretty good.

                            The first is small bearing on a 100mm long shaft and I use it on my lathe. Sometimes you have to machine a thin piece of plate or similar stock and it can sometimes be hard to hold them in the chuck and get them to spin true. I set the bearing tool up on centre or close to it and move it until it contacts the job which is not held completely tight as the job turns pressure from the bearing moves it slightly until it's true then I stop the lathe and tighten the jaws, it only takes a few seconds and saves me a heap of time.



                            The second will be a lot more useful to a lot of you blokes. It is based on a slide hammer but with a drill drift attached (used to remove morse taper drills from the taper) I found that often when I wanted to change the drill the drift would be there but I would have to find a hammer this eliminates the need for a hammer.

                              careful not to damage the thread when knocking. I took the flywheel bolt off and put an old socket over then hammer the socket.

                              don't forget to catch the crank.

                                Good idea to heat it up as well.
