Ongoing topic which includes any hand or power tool acquired or home made primarily to work on your tractors or attachments.

 

I'll start it off:  Got a 9 piece Kolbalt spline socket set 3/8 drive yesterday.

I bought on of these welding clamps a while back. Works real good.

Fuel pump pressure tester from HF. First one leaked bad. This one leaks a little. I'll try teflon tape. Good Luck, Rick

   Kenny where did you get your clamp, is it the German made version. I have wanted a couple of those since I used them at a job I worked. For the company I was working for they were a good deal but for home/hobby use I didn't think the expense was justified. I could buy more tractors for the same money. Don

I bought one of these bad boys recently. Works wonders when working on rusty equipment! Expensive, but to me it was money well spent!

I got it at TSC. Don't think it's German made, but works very nice!

Just received in the mail today.  Valve spring compressor set.  Always did things the hard way, either forming a tool, or manually pushing the springs down, but these days I need easier ways.  Just $14.78 to my door off ebay.

I had to replace my 10 year old Chinese plasma cutter. It seems to be hung up in pilot mode. I could have probably replaced a board and got it going, but I was in a hurry and bought a new one. It has more features and looks to be better quality than the old one and $100 cheaper to boot.

I got a brand new cordless drill.  Its not a DeWalt but it should do just fine.

Everyone talks of how wonderful their DeWalts are so I splurged and got myself this present.

Will that work on any of the Kohler K series engines?  Looks a little big for that.

Bought 2 of these. One had a big "ding" in the roller so it is going back!

No, only overhead valve engines.  

Lisle makes a good tool for L head engines.

 Part #LIS23300  Runs around $17.  I need to get one of these too.  I have a rigged tool, but it's subject to bending and soon will give out.  

 

 I also have one similar to the pic below, but it's extremely hard to get the keepers in place with it.

I "bought" (horse traded some labor)  a new to me but 80+ year old Yost "The Gem" 803 1/2 vise. 8" vice with 3 1/2" jaws  It's a good quality Forged vice made in Meadville PA.   He's a heavy dude for a 8" tall vice. It's gunked up inside and needs taken apart and cleaned up (if I can get it apart) but he's a keeper either way. Not much wear on it at all for how old it is.

 

It moves but it's pretty stiff.

 

I am going to dunk him in Muriatic acid to clean it up then try to get it apart. The large bolt on the bottom is stuck and I don't want to break the vice just to clean the gunk out of it.

 

 

It's impossible to find a New Forged vice for under $100.  It's not a huge vice but it's perfectly sized for what I need it for. My little Chinese POS vice is going on the shelf under the work bench. It's a handy little vice just not big enough to do much with.
