    Sorry can't figure out the iPhone photo rotation. Wrenching and IPAs just go too well together...

    Forgot to take a pic, but I picked up a bunch of Wera tools last week. T-handle hexes from an 8mm down to 2mm, a set of L-shaped hexes, and a few T-handle Torx. About $100 worth in all including shipping. Very little use so far, but dang, they're nice. So much better than the Kobalt tools they replaced, in every way, fit, finish, ergonomics, you name it.

    Decided to upgrade the old hacksaw. This thing seems pretty damn nice! Looking forward to trying it out.

    No picture because y'all know what they look like but added a bunch of new drifts and spacers to my Wheels Manufacturing bearing press kit.

    I've only got the little ones, but the Knipex Pliers Wrenches are a really nice tool.

    I had one of those moments and bought one of these sight unseen:

    Luckily we sell quality tools at work, so I got for good price Knipex cable cutters and Ridgid 3/8" tube bender for bending some rack tubing.

    Super cool thread. Seems like every day has been a new tool day as of late around this neck of the woods...

    .625, .750, .875 x 5.375" Radius Dies



    T47 Heatsink (assembled)



    83mm BB Heatsink



    44mm "split" Head Tube Heatsink



    Last but not least a jewelers loop. Been meaning to get one of these - up close isn't as sharp as it used to be...

    Those are nice dies Kris. I have been scheming on these myself for a while now. If I may ask...Did you start with round stock nearing on the finished radius or carve from block?

    On the subject of benders...This one's my dedicated 7/8". The "new tool" qualifier is that it just got a clamping update to allow for multi-plane bending to be calibrated. Not the end all be all by any sense, but it has allowed a lot of learning in the mechanics of bending and it has been adapted to let me try new designs in the grand scheme.

    Thanks. They were rectangular blocks, (This gives you a before/after perspective) which were roughly dimensioned, squared up, two holes drilled/tapped on the base then mounted to the rotary table to be finished to the correct radius and all subsequent op's there after.

    The most important principle of bending thin walled tubing (according to my opinion) is this: Maintain point of tangency while fully supporting the tube throughout the bend. No matter what kind of bender you come up with, if you stick to those basics, any tube, no matter how thin the wall can be bent with no wrinkles, dimples, lumps, etc.

    The handy bender's shortcoming, and the reason for scheming the new one(s). Can never have too many benders. For $100 plus some recycled metal, it has served a great learning curve.

    Bought myself a small Sieg SX2 milling machine. Will allow me to do a few more things that I couldn't do before



    and

    finally taking the steps to offering a product more in demand......

    I had one of those moments and bought one of these sight unseen:
    union_a1_advert_1945.jpg
    Got around to picking it up from the auction house a couple of weeks ago, and since then it's sat on my bench waiting for me to take it to bits. Even now it's in working condition so with a bit of fettling I think it will actually be a useful tool (I don't have an electric pillar drill). Paint is in surprisingly good condition. Handle is missing but apart from that it seems to have had an easy, if neglected life:
    Photo0059.jpg

    and a shot showing the fun parts:
    Photo0060.jpg

    Curiously the base casting is marked 'L1' rather than 'A1', but it's definitely an A1 and the Union L1 is a light lathe...

    The drill was a bonus; what I really wanted was a good-looking old vice that turned out to be a Record No. 3. One of the smaller ones but easily big enough for anything bike-related, and good for my little bench. It was all moving when I got it but in a rough state; covered all over in a thick coat of rust and grease. Underneath quite a lot of the original blue paint was actually still intact, but I took it all off to give it a new look (by hand with wire brush and acetone...). Gave the slide and contact points a bit of a sand down and polish, more for fun than function. The deepest gouges on the slide are too deep to take out, but it's a working vice after all. Once it was bare I popped it in the oven to bake some boiled linseed oil into it. I should have taken some 'before' picture of it, but here it is:

    Photo0061.jpg

    All in all I paid £16 for the vice, the drill, a box of woodworking tools (anyone interested in some old planes?) and a GREAT BIG ONE MAN CROSSCUT SAW which I have approximately no use for.

    try to do some research on what you have, I think some old planes are pretty valuable to the right buyer.

    once value has been determined, you can likely list on ebay to get you into the black on your investment.

    Matt's absolutely right; SOME old planes are worth a few quid. I would certainly be interested in them, but Matt's blown my chances of a bargain ;-) I can certainly help you figure out what they're worth though. Be careful selling on eBay, if you want the best price; that's where I picked up mine for peanuts.
