    Here's some Head Holders I made. I posted these in the American bikes forum, but thought they'd be better here.

    Hard to believe with all the innovation on our bikes, there aren't more posts in this thread. i thought for sure there would be some cool posts on this one.

    I am trying to make my 4x36 belt sander into a 4x60, but dont have anything cool to report yet.
    Also I have a 20 inch direct drive floor sander I am going to turn into a big ass stand up disk sander when I get time.

    Tools I make are fab tools. I dont know shit about engine work, I barley have the basic craftsman set of hand tools.

    This is what I used to remove and replace the trans sprocket nut on a Sporty. I found the idea on the interweb and copied it.

    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!

    Default tool

    I didn't "make" this tool, but I found an alternate usage for it. Mini flat prybar, perfect for snapping in pushrod spacers, first time go's everytime!

    not really bike related, or even homemade, more like makeshift tool. Was at work the other day needed a 5/16" hex head bit for a drill, I thought I didn't have one, ended up using a #5 Easy Out (installed backwards in drill) and a 3/8" drive 5/16" socket all damn day long,only to find a proper bit in my tool tote at the end of the day.

    A hammer head and handle.



    Most useful thing ever. Base is an M113 road wheel.



    This is now home to my big bench grinder and this polishing machine is used outside on the blue stand, Base for this one is a Leopard MBT road wheel.



    Engraving vice and tools. All home made except for the 4 jaw chuck and the hammer head (The head diameter is quite a bit smaller than original and the face is now curved, not flat.)
