Tool Junkie!!

Well I am a self admitted tool junkie. I find my self doing all my own mechanical work and because of that I find myself buying a lot of new tools to do the job right. My latest purchase is this. A Ohlins fork cartridge tool.



I think of it has a healthy tool obsession. So what new tools have you bought lately? Just a another thread to kill the winter months.


PS: Quite a few fork service writes to follow. Might as well put the tools to good use .

Right now I want to buy a propane heater so I can handle working in these temps in my garage.

Here in Fl I ran two a/c vents to my garaged. The wife says it is the man cave nothing fancy butt all the comforts for a gear head like myself. Tools where to start. I think the last perches was a valve spring compressor. Not only do I love working on bikes we tear into a few Chevys now and then.

A 1000W halogen light and about thirty minutes warms up my garage. Once you start wrenching, it warms up quickly. Just bought a Harbor Freight tire changer. Gonna make some mods to the mount/demount bar and holders so nothing gets scratched. Had to get a metric high speed 5 x .8mm bottoming hand tap for the project. Maybe not the coolest tool(s), but tools nonetheless. I will post pics when all is done.

I'm obsessed with compressed air and the tools that go with it for some reason.

Hey Guy,I have the same tire changer,but have a hard time holding the wheel in place.It want's to turn and lift out of machine.Also the mount/demount bar can really scratch the wheel .Do you have any ideas to fix this?
