    Gorgeous! Haven't heard about these... Same mechanism as Armstrong, Gear Wrench, etc? Or something new?

    Wow!

    Mavic does something similar, a lot less sophisticated tho. This one you've made is nuts!

    A few more gadgets. Replacement long drill bits for removing DT adjusters (or chasing/deburring old hubs), and a Vessel JIS n.2 1/4" bit for two quids always helps!

    Sorry for the delayed response as I somehow missed it. Not sure who makes the mechanism. Someone said it looked similar to that of Armstrong, but it could be its own design.

    No new tools. Just cutting up old ones for the S&S bike. The 8mm and 10mm are to make sure I can remove stuck pedals (just in case) and remove the cranks. The cassette tool is so I don't need another wrench when I already have the big heavy one. Wouldn't be great for the shop but they are great for the suitcase.

    One new one to go with two well used ones. I like parallel jaw pliers.

    Columbian (506 I think) found on Craigslist.
    Will pull it apart + rebuild. Really wish the previous owner hadn't painted it.
    But for the price . . . .

    Excellent find Tom. I REALLY need to sweet talk someone into welding up a stand for my vise.

    Don't even strip it down- as long as it has some grease in there just wear off the finish.

    Damn Eric . . . your vise beat mine!

    I ended up having to strip it down b/c it wouldn't open up (for fuck's sake the tail stock is NOT AN ANVIL) and it wouldn't lock in place. A little TLC, anti-seize and some squaring up with a file ... good to go.

    Then today I got a new hot glue gun.

    Almost as fancy as a Dynasty. Better color, < half the price.

    Sometimes I just have to have a little "me time" with the machines, and make some things. Cheaper than a shrink, and far more satisfying. Apologies and kudos both to Jason at Abbey for my home made copy of the HAG, the design of that tool was inspiring. As for the H tools, I miss the full Campy tool set I foolishly sold back in the 80's.

    Moving inside this winter, hands just get to cold in the garage. So this is so much lighter than big stand and base.

    Did you bore a hole all the way through the upper half or did you start with tube and press bushings in?

    The candlesticks look pretty dope, I've had a few requests to do those for thru axles, might have to draw on the same inspiration you did.

    Firstly, just want to say that your products elevate the market. Design, fit, finish, all beautiful.

    I used a piece of tube; and then pressed in bushings. I pushed the upper bushing in far enough so that there is about a 1/4" gap between it and the bottom bushing; when I assembled I placed a couple of o-rings in the gap. The o-rings provide enough friction between the shaft and upper half to keep the parts from sliding unintentionally, and the tool falling apart. Having never seen the HAG in person, I had to wing it. I'd love to know how you addressed this, and how you did the adjustable shaft for measuring to the rim. I read that it stores within the tool, I assume the shaft on a HAG is hollow?

    While I've got your attention, I wanted to share a small mod I made to your single sided bottom bracket tool for Campagnolo. While the tool was everything I expected ( it replaced a cast Park tool I had to shim with tape) I relieved it just a bit to allow 100% engagement over the grooves on the BB cups.

    Good to see tools so old they aren't green! We revised those to deepen the pocket a little not too long after yours was made and then again so you could use them with centerlock when that became a more common tool for that purpose. I still like the original as a BB tool as the stack height is low which helps with cam out.

    The male shaft of the HAG is heavy wall cro-moly tube that's centerless ground to a .0002" window. The upper half starts as bar and gets drilled to a little bigger window. There is an O ring in our tool but it's there as an oil wiper, not to create extra friction. The domed cap is threaded to the female upper and they pinch the gauge stick to hold your reading during use, only takes a 1/16th of a turn and once you get use to using it it's really quick. If you've never had one in your hand you would appreciate it, there's almost zero play when it's on the bike and allows you to align the hanger easily to within a mm or two. Kind of hard to do that with tools that have more slop than that when they're new. We also build ours with brass bushings in the head that get reamed to size. So when they do develop play over time you can rebuild them to new for ~$2 in brass.
