  1. Found a great web site for home builders:
    or see how many hits you get doing a google search, or bing search, for home made tools

    Lots of the items on the site have been taken from post on different site without the permission of the person that made the post. They did give credit and post links to the original post.

  8. pretty funny....maybe I should submit my anti billet belt adjustment wrench to add a double j tool post. Had to grind a Proto open end wrench to about a one eighth inch thickness to adjust my first and last March pulley kit for a SBC. Still pissed at that company. Tossed the kit, kept the wrench.
    Blech ! Billet still makes me sick.

    Hi kidcampbell71,

    By all means, let's see that wrench. Throw up a photo and anything else you'd like to say about it and we'll chalk up another JJ tool.

    Sort of on topic, I spent some time on the water recently and found myself wondering if anyone has used an outboard engine trim actuator to power any homemade tooling. Possibly a tubing bender or some other type of tool. It's a self-contained 12v unit that could probably be adapted pretty easily to something I'm sure. Not sure how much torque they actually put out, but just a thought.
