    The new cardboard aided design reminds me of the cut out I have for the Corvette grille. Need to look for that this evening.
    I guess day shift knocked one out of the park today, so all I should have to do is put alignment equipment on and verify their work. Were waiting on tags for the new motor to be bump checked for rotation. :thumbsup:

    Well then.... I’ll have to do some research.... I don’t use my one and only grease gun much.... 2 front driveshaft zerks, 2 on my push mower swivel caster wheels and 5 on the her jeep.... had Mobil1 grease which leaked all out last summer and had some cam2 grease laying around.... red ... I use this and then find something at TSC

    I had to look up a grease needle because I’ve heard of them and never seen one used. Seems like it could be handy, I ordered one off Amazon last night because “I might need this someday” been intrigued by those lock and lubes, but for the cost I figure I could afford to just yank harder to get it off the zerk!

    Speaking of the thread title change, I taped my Prinsu clone rack template together this weekend then traced it to a board to cut out. I identified a few tweaks and updated my files at work today.
    Think I might make another template for this weekend and try it out again.
    I also ordered all of the black stainless hardware and the 10 series extrusion ( enough to make a matching topper rack too!)
    I’m thinking I might rip my OEM rack off soon to verify the mounting hole locations. There’s something I don’t like about going off of a downloaded file’s position.

    A lab manager at work hooked me up with a solidworks license, so I’ve been trying to figure out how to use it via YouTube. Here’s what I got so far. The most random of designs. Maybe I should stick with cardboard. B64189BC-26BA-422D-BF7A-294AD09D47DB.jpg

    Just to clear this up, I’m not sending you my used one, I have another new one in the pack. It’s yours if you want it :thumbsup:

    I put the caps on the end of the guns, keeps the grease from leaking out so messy. And made some pvc racks for them on the wall to keep them out of the way, as well as catch any drippings. The two best things I added to the guns are the swivel fitting and the lock n lube. I keep one gun set up with mobile 1 and another one set up with XHP 322. Prior to this, I use to just keep them in a recycle bucket.

    Y’all are too organized! I keep my leaky grease guns in an old plastic tool box, that way the mess is contained!

    I got tired of looking around which bucket I stored them in. I'm far from "organized" but I have my own system for certain things. Problem with having a bigger shop (which I've never had before this one) is losing where you put stuff, a problem I'm happy to have though as I hate being crammed in lol.

    Well I suppose I’d have a go at it... appreciate the gift brother:fistbump:
    this thing almost looks new again. Who put the tires on? You have something to take off and put on?

    That’s awesome that you get to have that opportunity. I’ve never used solid works before, but I hear it’s really the mainstream CAD software. Should be pretty easy to pick up with all of the YouTube tutorials that are out there.

    I had the local tire company change them for me. The beads are too tough for my one tire tool and hammer, lol. I don’t mind doing tractor tires but not these little boogers!

    The quad tires suck!! Always make ya sweat even with a tire machine.... I installed 4 for brother joes mule the other week.... wasent to bad.... had to use the “cheeta” to seat the beads on the front wheels.... also had joes rear tires off of his kubota for new valve stems... easy peasy. I have trouble with atv tires and monster truck tires... bigger than 35’s!! They just to big for me to man handle :-/

    Over the last 10 years I've used maybe a third of the kit, the rest I'll never have any use for.
    It's a nice kit none the less, all the chucks have 4 jaws.

    I’m very fortunate that he offered. I guess we get an insane number of licenses for the engineering students.
