lincoln-electric-welder

After 40 years of running to a welder to get simple projects done, I finally decided I had had enough. Enough of the tedious marking, measuring, and clamping I had to do to properly position the parts for the welder. Enough of spending 30 minutes to do all this, and another hour going back and […]

Since the only heads available were reworked H-D ones, S&S would know […]

K&L Bearing Packer Harley Tool

K&L Bearing Packer

Ever pack a bearing by hand? It’s a messy pain in the butt. Why I did it for so many years I don’t know. Maybe it was because I was too cheap to buy a manual packer. Now that I’m older and much lazier, I don’t want to bother with that crap any longer. Or […]
