    This thread has kinda died, so here is an air tank for blowing the tire out to seal up on the wheel rim. It has a 2 inch ball valve and a flat nozzle to quickly dump the air from the tank between the tire and the rim. Northern Tool sells these for $300.00 +. This one cost nothing.

    I have needed one of those for years! I missed a good auction at a closed tire shop with a couple of them.

    Hum, I might start digging into the ol junk pile, I know I've got a extra tank somewhere....

    woodlands farm, I suppose if you showed a rude picture of him you could claim it was a tool you had made.

    Sorry no photos, and it was a simple tool, nothing like some of you blokes have made, so does not really need a photo. After having a hay crop cut by a contractor, there were a few patches that were very thick and needed spread. Problem – no spreader. I knew I had a piece of 3/8ths inch sprung steel round bar, so bent it into the shape of a two pronged fork, cut a notch in the end of a short piece of pipe, welded the two together, stuck an old curtain rail into the pipe, and bolted through the pipe and rail. Time about 15minutes. Cost one welding rod and a tiny amount of electricity. The alternative was a drive into town and spend some money.

    Spreading and then turning back the hay was good exercise for me over the next week. It was a simple tool, but by applying the same principle, and using an angle grinder/cutter as necessary, I realised it was possible to make several other hand tools, including a spanner to fit the 3” nuts on the irrigation taps and a shepherd’s crook. I also made a Hula Hoop from some old plastic water pipe when my wife decided she would like to reduce her waist measurement. Pity somebody else invented this 50 years earlier.

    Wish I had a pic, but I used to have a tool I called a "hook tool". It was a hoe where the weld on the blade broke off. I ground down the end to make a "hook". I used it a lot for fishing wires, testing ice on the pond, and stoking fires (which is how it met its eventual demise, the handle burnt up).

    It is risky welding on an old freon tank, but I tested it at 150psi and use it at 100psi. I have been welding with stick for 60 years and MIG for 30 years. I have used this tank for about 10 years with great results. A word of caution: Do not let anyone get if front of it when you open the valve.......it makes a heck of a noise and could damage their hearing.

    Cool thread, I don't know how I didn't see it until now. A while ago I posted a thread on a "tube splitter" to make the coiled type plastic protector that is used on hyd lines.

    Here is a Craftsman Pop Rivet tool I have been making wire hose clamps with for 15 years. I use stainless steel wire. You can use mild steel such as electric fence wire, but you have to be careful and not get it too tight or it will break. I have no idea if other brands of Pop Riveters will work or not. I just took these photos and I hope they are self explanatory. I learned this by trial and error, but now make most all of my hose clamps, especially on air lines and sprayer lines.
