    So far it's a little soon to say. It's the wrong time of year to test tools through use! The headset press is great: cheaper and way better constructed than Park, on par with the old Campy one I've used, better than old Cyclus, way better than new Cyclus. The fork-seal presses are great: with a "guide" portion like the old Marzocchi ones, but nylon like the new Rockshox. Used correctly this is one of few places where a plastic tool is preferred; use it with a framing hammer, don't expect great results. The cone wrenches are awesome: thick handles are super comfy (though a bit harder to store in a toolbox than Pedro's or Park), and chromed for radness; they seem far harder than most of the competition, but I won't comment on durability until 2017. The actual tips on the snap-ring pliers are too small for most of what bikes require, but the shaft portion is pretty good. I'll keep my crappy Channellocks around for now, or bite the bullet and call Snap-On.

    Indeed. Last time I bought one of the star-ratchet tools it cost me about $45 by itself.

    You can press it into a 15/16" 12pt socket, by the way. Renders it a much more useful tool, and stops it from cracking after the eleventh ham-fisted use in a vise. Yet another tool from the bike industry that could be slightly better quality, given that there's no substitute from another manufacturer...

    Alchemy makes a nice one similar to that, and it's "depth" is adjustable.

    well done, the tool for seating the seal is essential: using other things there is a high risk to deform the groove of the seal, resulting in the freehub binding when the QR is closed

    New to me anyway. I inherited a Gerstner box from my grandfather who was a machinist. I have idea what 90% of the tools inside are used for, but I hope to find out some day--wished I would have asked earlier.

    That's an AWESOME thing to inherit from a grandfather. As much as I'd love to procure some of it from you, you should hang on to almost all of it (the drill bits aren't special or hard to replace).

    Last year I got a Browning shotgun from my dad that was originally bought by my great grandfather, it was well used and loved very much.

    That's an unreal box and stack of tools.

    (The mirror in the top, by the way, is for picking bits of metal out of your eye. Apparently if you're a machinist and you're not regularly picking metal out of your eye, you're not working hard enough.)

    That box is from a time when safety glasses were more of a suggestion than mandatory equipment.

    Thanks. I don't see me keeping much of these, actually. The basic stuff (bits, taps, some handmade tools and work models) are actually going to a local artist who makes robots out of upcycled bike parts; he is going to make some pieces with them for my boys. The box I will probably just re-felt and use in my office. The nicer tools should be used and appreciated and I don't see us doing that; I'll keep one or two that we can actually use.

    Apologies in advance for the somewhat odd pics, I needed to test a camera my youngest kicked down the stairs. I am wondering if you kind folks could shed a little light on how these may have been used. On a lathe, press, etc? The 45deg tool and the clamp have maker's marks, but the other two appear home-made.

    stnphoto, nice stuff. Dont let go of that box it has history it is amazing to me how much people will pay for one even in bad shape, and your looks great, the history and memorys are worth more. When you get ready to move some of the tools let me know there are several things I could use in it. Ok here are a couple new tools I got in the last month, not so much your normal bike tools haha, a complete hout drill index set, cincinnati #2 tool and cutter grinder, and a weldon end mill sharpening fixture. Hey whats another 2200lbs in the back room, haha

    The vise is a general purpose guy, commonly referred to as a drill press vise but could be used for pretty much anything. The 45* jobber is meant for supporting an overhang. If you had something long chucked into a vise on a mill and needed to accurately keep the far end supported, that's the tool. The Kant Twist clamp is an awesome little clamp, copper jaws are great for welding and they actually generate a fair bit of clamping force for their size. I've got no idea what that last thing is, might be some bit of custom tooling they made for a job.

    31EjktJCVlL.jpg
    I got another pair of these guys last week. These are great for having around for random stuff. The nice thing about them is that the jaws always close parallel to each other and they are smooth. They are the next best thing to a custom socket for suspension top caps and can be used as a mini vise in the field to press suspension bearings and what not into frames/shocks. Only downside is the range of motion, each detent is only good for ~8mm so it can take some effort to select the right one for the application. The upside to this is that they create a lot of clamping force.

    This is actually fantastic. Got an incredible deal, loaded, adjustable cranklength etc. It hasn't really changed my sizing process yet, as i still measure & do a design. But now I transfer the contact points to the fit cycle and have the customer come in and try it out. I tweak it using the fit cycle. I can envision a day when I just pop the customer on the fit cycle & take my contacts points directly from the fit cycle.
