I picked up one of the swag offroad stands for a portaband. They don't do many sales so I put off getting one till their cyber Monday sale. It's not a full size band saw, but it sure beats cutting tube with an angle grinder.

Joining Matt in the "real compressor club". It's definitely not the worst $30 I've ever spent. 6.5 h.p. 220v single phase. Hole in the bottom, p.o. tried to fix with j.b. weld. I was given another larger compressor and tank (less a motor) a couple years back, and I haven't decided If I'll swap everything to the bigger tank or if I'll just weld up the hole and repair it the right way.

Throw the motor on the ingersol rand and chuck the tank from the other one.
I'm assuming it's a rust hole? If so....

Rusty compressors sketch me out

Love swag's stuff.
I remember when he started out on the jeep forums and no one though it would go anywhere and here he is 10, 15? years later still cranking out cool shit.
That little thing should do 95% of the jobs you'd need a bandsaw for, how often does anyone cut bigger than 4x4 stock anyway?

Technically I didn't purchase it because it was free, but I now have this RD250 race bike. Hasn't been run since the 90s, but the engine has been rebuilt within the past few years. I'm getting a solid 120 psi from both cylinders when kicking it over (cold). It has vintage shouldered Borrani rims, and not much else. Looks like it was set up to run premix. Previous owner/builder was a mechanical engineering instructor at Oregon State University.

They do make good stuff at fair prices. The DRO for benders, the air over hydro conversion, and things expanded from there. There's more I'd like from them, but cost and the very occasional need I have has stopped me.

Found this trailer for $200 on CL and couldn't pass it up. Time to get a hitch for the FJR.

My Father in Law pulled one of those same trailers behind his Suzuki GS1100 for thousands of miles and never had any problems.

Just got delivered a GS850 piston set off EBay for two 378 builds I have on the docket. Seller shipped them in bubble mailers, so the skirt broke on one and the crown got nicked on the other. Confused why these weren’t shipped in a box.

Frame and a couple of boxes of SR500 parts

I estimate there is about 90% of the engine. It was taken apart, but I have no history of why so checking everything. Some of the washers and other smaller parts might also be in the boxes but can be hard to see what is what.

Forks, tank and seat missing, but I found some ok looking forks on eBay and a guy offered me a tank for $20.

Well that sucks! I agree some people are stupid. I was sent a Harley transmission still full of oil and a gas tank nearly full of gas.

There is so much that can be done with those bikes.

Wow! That's a couple levels below stupid! One would that somene smart enough to take apart a motorcycle engine and part it out they'd be smart enough to properly pack something to ship it. Hope you zing them hard, Eric. Mrs and I sold all kinds of things on eBay for years and to us proper packing was just a given. Proper boxes and packing materials and good quality tape; it's just the cost of doing business!

No reason to zing someone when they make it right without incident. He's mailing another complete set of pistons, so I should end up with six good pistons when all is said and done. Things happen. I was pretty annoyed when I got them, and I certainly was baffled why they were sent the way they were, but the seller has been great in making it right.

Yep, glad to hear. Cory Probably meant "zing them if they don't make it right". Shit can happen, it's how it's handled that matters. I bought Floor from HD, had a hell of a time and expense to get it home only to find out they had changed it and it was not what was described. I called CS and after explaining and sending pictures they compensated me for the issues and I am still a HD shopper. I get stuff there for a reason. I always get good service. If they had of just told me there was nothing they could do I would not go back and every co-worker, friend and family member would hear the story and likely stop shopping there too. Instead I can say even though they screwed up, they made it right.

Absolutely! As a former long time eBay seller I would always recommend trying to work things out w/ the seller before just throwing up bad feedback and reporting them to eBay. In all the years I sold stuff that only happened to me, fortunately, once and it wasn't even justified, they just didn't like what they bought.
