Hows the barn?
Memories... like the coooorners of my mind, misty orange colored meeeeemories... of the way we wuz.
Not moving very quickly. The contingency on my present house went to shit, so now I'm making two house payments. Bank account isn't going to last long at this rate.
stop....you'll make me blush.
I got a quater bottle a vodka I could send your way....
No gin huh?
gins gone. avtually the codvas gone now too..next time.
hope it all goes well. night night...
y'all are part of a very select group.
Thanks Creeper! Way better than the steel tape I've been hassling with.
I'm famous man. Famous.
You know KTM sell' one of them Too Creeper. I can't decide to make one of yours or buy the KTM version.

ok, I've decided I'll make one
If you got a lathe... a KTM knock-off is less than an hour away.
this should go in the sticky section, thanks for the idea
Meat put it in the first post set under "1.b Repairs".
Too vague a title? I probably should add in "rear axle alignment tool".
HighwayChile, how did you search the index for this thread? The feedback would be useful to me.
With my arguably fuzzy logic... I think the "wheels" section would be the logical choice, as the tool is intended to align the rear wheel.
I suppose, if there was a "tools" section, that would be an alternate good location.
There isn't a "tools" section... is there? I don't imagine there is, as there wouldn't be much in it, unless you started searching for threads/posts that would be applicable... like that torque wrench "epic" for example.
Good effort, Creep, but you omitted the part about, uh... dammit. You covered it well, and showed good word usement, tool.
I use a remarkably similar tool of my own design (ahem) to measure fluid level in da forks.
Come to think of it, maybe this is just one of the basic, fundamental tools... you know, knife, pliers, zip-tie-on-a-stick...
Way to go, Creep. And don't forget to keep hope alive about the barn; my garage is just now dried-in, a week after pouring the foundation. It only took ten goddamn months to get to that. You'll get that barn yet.
Well, I have the engine, tranny, drivetrain in one section, and suspension, wheels, and brakes in another. This is a cross-dresser, no, crossover tool right? I stuck it in the drivetrain section because my addled brain thought chain, but you are right, it is also a rear wheel issue.
Perhaps a Tool section would be a nice workaround? That might be a nice congregation point for all things TOOL, such as tool kits, and tool storage, and... yeah, good idea'r!
Oooooh, the torque wrench thread. Dat's a goodie.
Hey Stephen... funny guy.
You should do a post on your fluid level tool and how you use it... when you get a opportunity.
"Zip-tie on a stick". I have another tool-on-a-stick... it's called "spark plug on a stick". Handy for holding heads while I'm mangl... working on them.
The deal is... I have two houses, one I'm in now and the other one with the bigass workshop; they are about 28 miles apart.
We don't want to move just yet because a house with furniture sells better than one without. We had this place sold on a contingency, then that went to shiz... so we have to start over.
If the new place was a bit closer, I'd just move my current shop over there and commute, but it's a PITA to do that so... 1500 sq.ft. of shop sits empty.
