home made tools and equipment
« on: January 18, 2012, 02:04:03 PM »
I'd like to see what everybody is using for home made tools and equipment in the home garages , send in a few pictures and made measurments or plans .  Bead rollers , stands , press , english wheels , etc . Lets see what you made 8)

    My brother made probably the simplest tool, and used often. Just a simple socket and a chunk of 1/2" solid round tubing about 2 1/2" long for removing sealed hubs on newer dodge 4X4s. Simply back off hub bolts slip on the tool and work the steering left and right and slowly walk the hub off. Best of the KISS theory

    The kiss theory is the best one , everybody can handle it then . Do you have any pictures of it , that would help to show everybody just what your talking about .  ;D

    I'll see if I can figure out how to download pic with Iphone when my brother gets home from work. There are probably several Snap-on sales men that have retired due to his purchases, but he also has some homemade tools. You could also use a stubby extension on the socket, it's just a matter of backing off the bolts, using a socket ensures the drift wont slide off the bolt; and you just work the tool and the steering from left to right to walk the hub off

    Well here a couple of my favorite ones.

    Home made press, made out of a "broken" engine hoist.



    Different wrenches for all kinds of purposes



    This is how I get another 4"s out of my jack



    I still don't know why people buy a welding stand when they buy a welder?



    Work bench that holds a good bit of tools and parts underneath. Alot of magic happens in the vise.



    I have some more but that would just be me showing off!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D

    Hope this inspires someone.

    man I need to resize these pictures again. there way too big.

    Yes I realize I need to post pics, but I used an old bbq to cart my mig around. Tossed the bbq housing, screwed down a chunk of plywood for the welder to sit on. Looks like I get the weekend off and I'll post some pics.

    That is a good job on the welding cart , it also follows the kiss theory . I can only wonder why I've never seen it before . Wish I had thought of it ...  8)

    Honestly thought there would be a lot more responces to this post, without worries about being flamed, now i realieze that they are not certified but they have worked out with out failure for me over 20 yrs. 12'x12' base 4.5' tbg with 4' internal riser and 1/2' cold roll for height locking. Princess Auto 6 ton stand for comparisson, but I know what will be under a vehicle when working outside off concrete or pavement

    My RC is sitting on 4 of those Princess Auto jack stands right now out in my garage , looking at yours and thinking about mine , now you have me thinking lol .
    I thought this post would take right off too ,  guess it must have been done before . Most of the guys and gals on here love doing there own work , that means you have to make your own tools or fab something up at times . Homemade tools are big on other sites . I tried to post some of my pics , but that didnt work . I guess I have a lot to learn about computers yet to  ;D

    I made these threaded jack stands waaay back when I ran a burn table on second shift. Shortest they will go is 12" and the tallest they'll go is 21".  I should have made them taller. ::) I made a set of four, for me and shopboss, then made another five sets when the word got out.





    edit- I guess they aren't really home made, but I painted them at home....

    Thats a nice job on those jack stands , and simple enough that most can make them up . I've been having trouble post my pics , so how about ones that I saved from other people . Don't know who to credit , because I've had them so long . But , nice ideas . First is a set of vise grips designed to spread , simple and it works . Second is a small press , simple and it works .

    How about a Circle Cutting Torch Guide , this is simple enough to . Looks like a clamp for sheet metal duct work , a bolt ran down through it with a lock nut . Sharpen on one end , just enough to stay in your center punched hole .

    How about a shrinker - stretcher stand . I made up two of these , for lifting up the back of a snowmachine when your working on it and its running . Had a little different top with a handle and a hook . Gave one to my buddy and change to top on mine for my shrinker - stretcher . Guess I wanted to work on sheet metal more than a snowmachine .  ;D

    Home made roller for bending flat bar , etc . I liked this guy's design , why didn't anybody think of this before . Kiss design again . Notice the small bar for turning the top wheel and moving the flat bar through . Crank it down a little at a time and keep rolling it back and forth , you can make a perfect circle quite easy .

    No picture of the tool this time , but picture this  ??? . I cut an eyebolt off and welded the eye to the end of the bolt on one of my vise grips . I could clamp it on to anything and tie a rope onto the eye for better pulling , works great and you will use it more than you think . Wish I could find mine , guess somebody came into the shop and wanted it more than me . Time to make a new one

    Ever try to hand a door on your car/truck by yourself without scratching it . With this and your floor jack ( you do have a floor jack ? ) it makes life a lot simpler . It can be modified for bumpers , etc

    Forgot , the circle cutting torch guide . If you want to bevel the cut , drill and tap it for a carriage bolt . I'd use a lock nut to keep it from moving also .

    I was going to pretend that I know what a shrinker -stretcher is, but I got nothin' ::)

    All those are really ingenious, I'll have to dig thru my old tools and see what else I got.

    I built the trans cradle for replacing my trans and transfer case together.  Those chains made it nice for lifting all that weight.  I put it on saw horses did the work I wanted and lowered it with the hoist.

    most Cummins owners know how big a pain it is getting to the oil pressure sending unit.  here's my solution -

    1-1/16 socket, cut the barrel off, weld it to a 'handle' - works awesome {cool}





    this is what I made to get to the three nuts that hold the injection pump to the gear housing -

    Don't have a picture at the moment but I welded up a socket out of sheet metal to fit the big axle nut on a front axle

    I made a fluid evacuator and pump from a peanut butter jar, a spray bottle "straw", some misc fittings from my vacuum bleeder, and an adjustable air pressure regulator.  Works great for pumping fluid into trans, diffs, etc when you can't get a funnel or bottle in there.  I use the regulator to pressurize the jar for pumping, and the vacuum pump for evacuating.  I use it more for the pumping function.  I know they sell bulb style hand pumps for that but gear oil or several quarts will quickly tire out a forearm.

    That transmission stand is slick. Did you use 1x2 tubing. The way you have it set up, is it fairly balanced. At some point I'll need to go through my 727, and I've never seen anything like this before. Anything you would change. Sorry for all the questions, but that thing is so slick
