Sorry, didn't get a pic of the fan I installed at that filter. There is another 24"x24" filter that allows fresh air into the PoorBoy Paint booth.

And it works well as many of you know.

Hell yes that counts!

Those seats would be bad ass in a bus or lengthwise in the bed of a single cab.

I do almost everything single handed, so I often have to throw together a "third hand" to help me out. Here's the one I made to support the gearbox shift rod at the right height while I fabricate the front mount for the tranny raise. The gearbox sits between the rear cradle and this little thing ... leaving me with both hands free. I don't have to rely on just a jack, and can set it up easily it so the shift rod is exactly centered on the tunnel.

I think the final version may grow a couple of side legs to keep it laterally stable. It wouldn't take too much effort to make a universal one with a sliding cradle to set the actual height ... there again .. I'm only planning on doing a couple of tranny raises in my life so a one-off is fine for me.

Coolest Sand Blasting cabinet ever. I hear it was bought from a MC shop at auction for $200

I dont have a bench grinder and there are times I need a little hands free action with the angle grinder. Answer- The angle grinder vise mount!

Some 1" angle and about 15 mins of time. Clamps right into my vise.

Bolts right into the handle mounting points. Rock Solid-

Reversible for additional grinder positions-

I may add a little table to it later. Works very well so far. Only takes seconds to set up.

Most recently I rebuilt my creeper. Ok... so I put a new board on it and wrapped it shiny. I swear it works better than before! LOL

DIY Jackstand/Tire Dollies

I have always hated when I got my car apart that is was stuck where it sat. That's very inconvenient in the winter when I like to park my Jeep inside. Over the past few days I took the time to make up some Jackstand/ Tire Dollies and I did it all for $88!!!!

I started out with a 6ft piece of 2x1/8" Angle. Cut it to 32" and cut out 4 pie cuts every 8". Perfect for my jackstands. They will also work perfectly as tire dolly as well-

Stuck it in the vise, bent square, and welded-

I first tried a set of these hard rubber casters... they sucked-

They didn't roll very well and had a tendency to cause it to be unstable-

To gain it little more stability I added another 12" piece of 2x1/8" Angle on two sides. I angle cut the ends to prevent future blood drawing incidents (LOL)-

Added 3 steel casters on each side. This allows me to roll over cracks and expansion joints in the floor with ease-

End result- Perfection!

I am certain there is some other junk around the shop my old tired mind is forgetting.

Finally found the thread..

I didn't really make anything, so much as found a good way to use something..

Here's the background with pictures:

Basically, there's a locknut holding the clutch on my motorcycle. This locknut requires a special Honda tool to remove, I can't find the damn thing to save my life.

But I do have needlenose pliers with a 90 degree bend and a pair of vice grips

I keep accumulating more stuff in the shop and Im running out of space . I had the old heavy arse slip roller sitting on some saw horses. It one of those things that you use once in awhile and you don't move it to often. So I came up with a simple solution to get it out of the way and make it mobile.

I fab up this neat little rolling stand thats attached to the wall. I used the kids old trampoline enclosure frame that I was going to scrap. The wheels are slight arced to roll .
