Default Re: My junkyard find

I have 4 stands made from Model A bells in my shop that I use all the time. I cut off the spring mount and drilled 2 holes in the bearing surface to which I welded 1/2 inch nuts, then found some heavy wall tubing that slipped inside the ends to which I welded short lengths of 3 inch channel on the top end. By adding a 1/2 inch bolt to each of the nuts I have some very useful adjustable stands. Built them about 40 years ago.

I could use just the outer end of one and I don't care about the bearing surface. Only concern is that the shackle hole isn't worn out.

They can be sleeved if not too bad.

Another thing you might want to do is build a "bead breaker" for lawn tractor tires ?
