    Harley is pretty good about plugging up the thread holes in the frames, but on my 07 sportster the dude had put the forwards on and missed putting one plug back into the mid control spot. That hole was pretty nasty, rusty. I Wd40 it and sprayed it out but I couldn't get the bolt to thread in.
    I do not have a tap and die set, so 30 seconds with a hack saw, and a triangle file and I did this. Worked like a charm,

    not really a home made tool but i did come up with another use for a pipe cutter. i f you need to make a square cut on a piece round tubing you can use the pipe cutter to mark it then it's just a matter of following the line. works pretty good too! and you don't really need a sharp one as long as it doesn't "walk" the tubing or pipe you will get a good square mark on the piece

    This thread rules.

    Here's my contribution. Not really a tool as much as a different use for a tool. I needed a tool to stop my pulley from turning as I tried to get the nut off. My solution was to use a C-Clamp clamped to the pulley and jammed up against a bolt head. Worked like a charm. The nut came off in like 2 seconds with the impact wrench.

    i just came up with another tool modification for the jd2 notchmaster. i needed to cut a coped cut on a bend and i just couldn't get the saw where i needed it even with the swag off road upgrades i just bought so i took the old plate that the shaft housing bolts to and i put it in the new hole that i drilled for the reach around arm and i put a 1/2" shim in and it gave me a lot moe versatility with it and if i had to i could use different thickness shims for even more adjustment

    Bump, she do the bump-she-bump! The bump-she-bump!

    Ooo, mile!

    But seriously, this thread is too awesome to fall into obscurity. Has anyone come up with anything new lately?

    Here's one every builder should have, simple bike jack to support the bike or raise the rear wheel when on the lift table.

    Step 1, go to the junk yard and ask for a lightweight scissors jack from a compact car. My place gave me 3 to choose from, $10. Each

    Step 2, assemble your parts. I had a piece square tubing from a weight bench someone was throwing away. I cut a window out for clearance, and welded a piece of 1/2" ID. Steel tubing to the pivot point of the jack. I drilled a hole through the side of the square tubing and put it all together with a bolt and lock nut. Works awesome! Cheap and simple.

    I'm sure everyone has some scrap flat bar, a section of old chain, and a hand drill with drill bits in their garage.

    On my Evo I placed the non chain end of the tool onto the bigger stud located forward and to the bottom of the sprocket. It makes the job EASY if you don't have anyone helping you in the garage!
