Default tubing tool

I thought this would be one of many prototypes---but it worked perfectly (after some adjustment--grinding tube jaws to fit closer) Made from salvaged 1 in. & 3/4 in. square tube(old clothing store display rack) The 5/16 rod slides nicely through 1/8 in. iron pipe. Made my 2nd. year tapping/tubing much easier!!

Very neat design. Throw a coat of paint on it so it will last for many years. Fun building stuff during the off season.

Default Repair Pliers

Had a little extra time on my hands...figured I would sit down and try making a repair pliers. I made a few extra. All I need is something to slide on for the handles. If anyone's interested in a repair pliers, send me a PM.

Okay that looks every bit as good or better than the dealers ones. Nice build. If you got extras you are trying to sell put them in the classified where they will be better seen on a day to day basis.

I sent you a Personal Message. How much do you want for a pair? and if you are going to sell them, how would we arrange shipping and payment?
