Made my own jackstands specifically for my Bronco. Simple to make and they work great! Only thing I would change is make the legs a little bit longer. Not that I had any problems, just piece of mind... Build with 2" X 3" 0.120 wall square.

In action! Haha

I wouldn't put a lot of faith in those. I would bring some supports up the sides from the feet and cut the top off and weld on a peice of c-channel on the top.

I'm sure they could use some over-engineering if you wanted but they work great. After putting the Bronco on them I tried to move it as much as I could and the thing is solid as a rock. And as far as the C-channel goes it would take a ton of force to knock them out of the current cradels that are there now, not sure how some thick C-channel would make it any better.

Either way they work way better than a common jackstand with or without improvements.

I bought this workbench on Craigslist and bolted the nice 2" thick wood top to it for a nice and beefy work bench. Finally I have a decent bench to work on in my garage.

I posted this one in a different thread before. I got sick of crushing cans all the time so I built this out of some scraps I had laying around and a nuematic cylinder I found for cheap on ebay.



I needed a steering stem socket for my bike. So i bought a cheap 36mm socket on ebay and took the dremel and angle grinder to it.

I'll get some better pics when I get home. The valve came with the auction I won with 2 cylinders, I think its just a double action manual air valve. eventually I will build a different one has an electric valve and hopefully some sort of hopper to load cans in.

Finally got around to taking some pics.

It's a 2 way cylinder so you need air to open and close it. you can see the 2 lines, one charges it to open the other charges it to close. The connections by the air inlet is where the air is released when you hit the switch.

You can find one way air cylinders that will retract with a spring too and they are easier to hook up, but they don't retract as quickly. The one way air cylinders are more efficient on your compressor, but like I said a bit slower as far as reloading another can.

I am running a 30 gallon 6hp craftsman compressor and it keeps up pretty well at about 100 psi. I have to let it catch up a bit after about a 17 gallon tub filled with cans.

not really bronco related, but I made a tire changer and bead breaker for my motorcycle tires.













videos of changing a tire





bead breaker



I will rebuild it and make the bead breaker integrated into the tire changer and make it out of metal.
