So I decided to make a new thread that's more on the topic of tools and garage/shop stuff. Basically just somewhere that everyone can post about tools that they have and what they're used for, and also just general things that you have in your shop that's really useful....maybe even things that aren't useful that you wouldnt recommend buying at all. Also garage organization ideas and pretty much anything shop talk or shop related. Again anyone can post so dont think your going to take over the thread or anything like that. Tools/Garage Stuff 2731072446

P.S. I couldnt think of a better name at the moment so if you have a better one let me know.

Built this a couple years ago for my old craftsman box. Recently adapted it to my new roll cart. Just a 2” box tube cross affixed to the frame of the cart with muffler clamps. The sheet metal on the bottom is pretty thin so I used plate steel as a big washer. Easily removable for if it’s going to stay in one location for awhile. I take it an hour home from work every weekend to work on my own stuff

That's a pretty neat setup there! Reminds me of Hotrod Drag Week where people put tool boxes, tires and pretty much everything they need on the back of their race car.

Well I've been using these 90 degree clamps a lot here lately and I recommend buying one or two of these if you haven't already. These are WAY better than trying to clamp whatever your working with to the table and then try to hold the square up to the part and clamp it down at the same time.

Well I definitely had a good Christmas. My parents got me this nice craftsman tool box and tool set! It's pretty awesome, it comes with both 3/8 and 1/4 inch ratchets and sockets from 5/32 to 7/8 and from 4mm to 19mm. It also comes with a set of both metric and standard Allen wrenches, a small assortment of regular box end wrenches, and a 1/4 inch drive screw driver thingy (idk what they're called) with a bunch of different bits. I'll still use my vintage Husky 1/2 inch ratchet set but these are nice because they are 6 point sockets and even though I'm pretty skeptical about the quality of new tools (even the ones made by old companies) these actually feel really really nice and are even a little tighter than my Husky set from the 70s.

Yeah, I take good care of tools. I've got some kobalt ratchet wrenches that I use pretty often. They are definitely nice to have. The kobalt ratchets are nice but the sockets are like 3 bucks a piece.

These things are the best, especially if youre lazy like me and dont care enough to make perfect cuts. Theyre dirt cheap too.

Where do I get one of them there angle clamps? Do they make any other angles too? Need like an adjustable one where you can change the one side. The 90 one would be helpful pretty often though. I'd like to have some kinda exhaust pipe vise too for work. I'm sure there's something out there but I never research it. Something with cupped jaws instead of flat like a normal vise, because trying to cut exhaust pipe in a normal vise with a sawzall is a pain. It rattles loose and the vise crushes the pipe down. Especially short pieces.

Pipe vises work good but honestly the one @Creepycrawler linked looks like it would work better than the one we have.

Heres a link to an adjustable clamp.

So for my birthday I bought myself a bead roller which is pretty cool! Very Happy I've been wanting one for awhile now and I got this one on Jegs cause it was on sale. Its overall a good value for the amount of dies it comes with.

Like most of these it flexes alot and there are some things that I would like to change to make it better. So I will definitely be upgrading alot of it. I was going to just build one but the gears would have coasted more than the bead roller and finding 2 spur gears with the same outside diameter as the dies that fit a keyed shaft is hard.

I bought myself a tubing notcher. Just one of those cheaper one's off of Amazon. Its actually alot nicer than what I thought it was going to be, so that's pretty cool! It's about 3 degrees off which ain't bad, need to make some adjustments but other than that it'll be fine for what I'm gonna use it for!
