Garage Mods

What garage gadgets have you come up with? Tools, tool storage, flame thrower, etc...

I didn't invent this, but I love it! I was doing some power sanding in my house and I didn't want dust everywhere. This cheap air filter worked great. I have very little dust in my house. This could also be run all the time in the garage.

Supplies
Box Fan ~$15
20x20" Filter 3 for ~$8


All you have to do is place the filter on the suction side of the box fan. Feel free to tape it up. I use cheap filters and throw them out when they look dirty.

ive used my hi lift handle as a breaker bar extension...does that count?

i also bought me one of these handy grill lights...its got a magnetic base so you can stick it anywhere on your truck (carefully...i put a piece of cloth between usually) and angle the light exactly where you need it

ok. Changed the title.

Anything that you have done to your garage to make it better now also counts.

Cool! Thanks you!


That being done, I have built shelves in our laundry room, and built some steel shelves in our shop. I will get some pics this weekend. Not of the laundry room, though.....Its a mess, and I dont want to try and organize it yet.

Well this one is for you motorcycly riders. Probably betteroff being sport bike and Dirt Bike riders because they are lighter. In my old garage we had an access to our atic we needed to suport our front wheel up pff of the ground so we could take the front tire off and get a new one mounted. we opened up the acces (this access shouldn't have fold out stairs.) We took some ratchet straps and wrapped them around the cross members on either side of the access and then hooked them up to the handle bars. Then we just ratcheted the front of the bike in the air. It was very solid it held the wheel straight. I wouldn't recomend doing this with the rear tire though.

Parking was never this easy in High School

Parking made easy if you hang your balls properly.

You won't bump into the wrong parts if you do some research, and learn where the doors are. I just hope as time goes by, my balls don't sag too much.









It seemed like a good idea at the time
