    When done, discard.
    I love this! Great idea, thanks for that Don Bob. I'll try that when the Gipsy's brakes are on. Bleeding those will be tricky I guess since there is the antidive to be bled too.

    My contribution for this awesome thread might not be new to most of you but I post it anyway:

    I bought a 40mm sanitary tube for 50ct as an oil seal driver for the Gipsy's fork rebuild. The bigger end fits perfectly on the hard outer rim of the oil seal.

    Re: Let's see your most unique tools

    Arash, your doohickey tool for marking hole centers is great. This is a prototype piece for something unrelated I had made for me some years back and serves no other purpose. It has just been sitting on my desk. I'll make a version of the doohickey out of it.

    I also just ordered another set of cannon plug pliers. Mine were lost in a move and I recently could have used them. The picture reminding me of that.

    A tool you (or your friends) make yourself is worth 10x one that is commercially produced.

    Re: Let's see your most unique tools

    Is it took much to ask that tool manufacturers put their roll marks on sockets in a uniform manner so the size is always visible in the same place on each one?

    They are, it's not their fault you put them on some crappy holder that makes them not sync up.

    Almost don't want to share this one, too simple, too basic, yet functional.

    A cheap bastage's brake.

    A simple piece of hose that fits spark plugs and helps you install them in the 4" deep tunnels of many engines, and also helps bleed the air out of fork cartridges by tightly fitting the rebound rod letting you pump it up and down.

    Not so unique but pretty rare from my experience. Never heard of one of these until 3 weeks ago.

    My middle son (15) built this for me for Father's Day. He found a broken workmate and customized it for me. Has strapping around the edges to hold tools, shelf on the bottom. Said he noticed when I worked on bikes my tools were all over the ground and thought this would help. Even padded to top so I can put delicate pieces there if need be.
