Nice tools Tribulation.On the clutch tool I made the flat stock long enough to come past the crank shaft sprocket drill two hole for holes in crankshaft sprocket to match but mind was a XLCH and didn't have the compensating spring as electric start may not work for you but it locks everything up.Plus I used a bigger all thread and pushed in on center of clutch basket.Double nut it on the end so you can screw it in.

Default Homemade timken bearing tooling

My latest addition to my tool box made with 2" and 1" round stock I had laying around in the workshop and other bits and pieces like one used set of wheel bearing salvaged from my 79 project.

It was my first "real" project on my small 8x14 lathe and I'm no way pretending to be anything close to a proper machinist but I thought I should share this on the forum so it may give idea to other members to take the step and start making some chips....

It was great fun to build these tools and I really enjoyed to have to solve quiet many newbie "lathe operator" challenges on the way like my first internal and external threading, the blind bore threading or the indexing contraption for drilling holes for the handles, and many others...

Learned a lot with this first tooling project and it already paid back for about 30% of the price I paid for the lathe if I had to buy such tools from Jims or others....

dont push on the center hole on the sprocket shaft as shown here. put something inbetween it.

I bought this kit. He's a vet who lives in Salem Oregon, I believe. I live in Portland, 45 miles away. So I thought I'd help a bro out. $150 did seems a little high. I had to modify several of his components for my '62 and '65 lower ends. But nothing more than a drill press was necessary to fix my issues. Sure beats the price of JIM's tools that's for sure.
