Nice idea for a thread Brad. Here's a spring compressor I made for disassembling shocks.



Stores away neatly.

Not tools for motorbikes, but here is a planing jig I made to flatten and thickness plane wide boards


I made my router table myself. It's about $20 worth of 2x4 and MDF.

That's why I like you brad. I was twisting my brain because there had to be a reason. Your sheet metal stake kit looks a lot like mine. All you need is a railroad track anvil.

I could have used a brake yesterday when I was bending up a license plate bracket. Got it done but not as neat as it would have been with a brake, great idea.

I'm surprised my avatar is enough to overwhelm all my faults. That's the nicest thing you've ever said to me. ;)
