Used on 2 strokes to set up carburetors
This is the final version of the tool to open bezels on crimped gauges. this gauge was opened in less than a minute and no damage to gauge housing. the t handle gives it the power to spread it easily and the channeled and radius end fit so it does not slip.
When using rattle can paint on small parts (we all do it at times) here is an old trick used by modelers . heat the can either in a tub of hot water or with a heat gun. make sure you monitor it carefully ,rotate and move gun up and down can, also shake before and during paint.CAUTION: You can blow the ends if you overheat it and can be hurt or make a mess so be careful!! Heat slowly about 6 to 8 inches from the can and only until it is warm not hot! leave the cap on too and if it gets too hot you will usually see the top pop (yes i have done it- never exploded one but possibility is there!) Spray first coat light and then the next one or two coats full coverage. And of course once done flip can upside down and spray to clear tube and nozzle , then wipe face of nozzle. You will be amazed at how well the paint flows and how fine it sprays…
Took care of a few items the last few months, kick,magneto and drive, chain guard and cylinder head.
BSA fork tube bent .107″ . Straightened in a press using a non metallic block bored and cut in half to set on the tube properly. The blocks material does not allow it to deflect or crack while moving the tube the proper depth so it will end up straight. First the tube is spun on supports to find where it is bent and then mark the high and low spots. It takes a few times to figure out the extent of deflection needed to straighten the metal while not going to far.. Finished up with .002″ t.i.r.
