    Bmw r1200rt

    My MadAss got stolen right out of my garage along with 2 motorized bikes. That's all they took, just bikes w/o license plates. The MadAss was registered, but I hadn't put the plate on yet. Me thinks they slim-jimmed the door lock, so it's now a commercial grade dead bolt with no knob, just a...

    Aluminum Brazing

    This is so cool. I saw this stuff on the internet but didn't buy because it was really expensive. Then I saw some at the hardware store and thought why not? Don't need oxy-acetylene, just propane and a stainless steel brush. You just heat the part, scratch the rod until it melts and then...

    Harbor Freight Workbench

    I just bought one, gonna convert the middle bedroom to a indoor "hobby room" This looked good, was on sale and I used a 20% coupon also. But that's not the cool part. There is a Harbor Freight right here in town and I could have...

    I hate 2 strokes

    The last leaf blower lasted a whole 2 years and it had a Tanaka in it. POS. The new leaf blower is a 4 stroke; It starts a lot easier and runs a lot smoother. And as you see, it blows just fine. Did my work today, even went up on the roof and blew out the gutters. Now it's...

    Gutter Siphon

    Just got the back gutter replaced, it rusted out at the "low" spot. Sags in the middle and the water there takes longer to evaporate. After the big rain I thumped it and sure enough it sounded like there was water there. Sure would be nice to "help" that stuff out of there eh? You know w/o...

    Band Saw

    Just got a new toy to make the metal fab go easier. This table converts your hand held band saw into a stationary unit. Brilliant! SWAG offroad products. It is so much easier to feed the work into the saw than it is to feed the saw into the work. And the best part is it's not much...

    Worksman Friction Drive

    This is a re-do. I've had the bike for over a year and it had the China clone Solex on the back. Today the Solex came off. Along with the lock I couldn't find the key for which is a topic for the safety & theft department. The Staton bracket was test fit and looking good. I...
