I finished tacking up the exhaust and delivered it to Bill Lewis for final welding.
Check out this fixture he made for a header he's working on for another customer!
Earlier this weekend I smashed the cable in my SK hose clamp pliers. Replacement cables are no longer available, but I figured I could make one.
This is the factory ferrule that was clamped to the cable. I figured I could duplicate this on my lathe and crimp it to a new cable.
New piece turned, installed, and crimped onto $2.34 worth of 1/16" steel braided cable.
Back in action!
New tools! This picture contains the highest quality tool and lowest quality tool I have ever purchased. I bought the O2 sensor socket from Advance... it got the job done, but it's the ugliest piece I've ever seen!
I have been looking for a good deal on a Dynafile for a few months, and I scored this new-old-stock Dynabrade Dynafile II on eBay. Occasionally I will buy a tool and wonder how I ever lived without it, and this is quickly becoming one of them. I've borrowed a friend's import version a few times, but everything works so much better on the Dynabrade. It makes finishing welds so easy, it's like I'm cheating!
