Tool Making


Untitled, originally uploaded by rackntroll.

A little bit of sunday afternoon toolmaking.
This is to remove/install the ring nut on a DT Swiss hub.
The tool from DT Swiss retails for nearly $100.
I had an old star-ratchet lying around doing nothing, that has now become useful.
I just need to braze or weld it onto the stub.

Time for an Update

I have a bunch of photos since my last post.  Some are neat, some are boring, in no particular order.  You be the judge.

This didn't happen overnight.

The bolt that hold the cranks together broke.

Neglect.  Original brake pads to my Cross Check.  If I didnt change them yesterday surely the pouring rain this morning would have worn them to the metal shoes.
