I was needing something & didnt have it so i made do !
[attachment=5785:6509.attach]
This is the part i was needing. I have no idea what one would cost? Probably not much!

I had some old deck hangers in the scrap pile out back! (EXCUSE ME) in the reserved parts area out back!:laughingteeth:

[attachment=5786:6510.attach]
So i got my angle cut just so so (technical measurement) to where id get the most leverage with the least amount of effort & im all about that !:laughingteeth:
[attachment=5787:6511.attach]
Then using a mounting bracket off a saftey shute (found in reserve parts pile) for the shoe part of the bead breaker
[attachment=5788:6512.attach]
I shaped it to the correct specifications! (beat with a hammer)
[attachment=5789:6513.attach]
Then with my precision welding capabilities (i stuck it all together)
[attachment=5790:6514.attach]
Put a custom paint job on it & there you go!
something 4 nothing ! About 20 min labor (hunting 4 camera):laughingteeth::laughingteeth:

Great Fabrication!
Its always nice to be able to fab up your own parts instead of buying them.

Appalachian Edge, you are definitely what my grandfather used to call a "working blacksmith" when he was lamenting the lack of availability of such. Excellent work.
