Wow! Phak 1, that Balder grinder is a nice one. I still use my Dads 1936 double shaft Frigidaire motor. A brand new Frigidaire refrigerator fell off the back of his buddies appliance truck truck and he gave it to Dad. It has been through hades and back. It will no longer start without hand turning it first. I hope I can fix it, I believe I used to know how to repair a centrifugal starter. Anyone out there that can get me started (no pun). Just bought 2 like new Snap On manifold wrenches for Chevy stovebolt manifolds. Doc.

Picked up the correct factory king pin driver/reamer to do my kingpins. Had to look high and low and do some research to figure out what to look for and then after some emails and questions it turned out to be perfect.

Picked up a SAE set of (open on one end and ratcheted on the other end) gear wrenches. Some of mine had wandered off so a new set was in order.

Gasket scraper was a little pricey but haven't used one that I like or am happy with. Heard very positive comments on this tool from other mechanics. Made in the U.S.A about an hour West of me in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Can't wait to try it out.
I picked up some exhaust mock up tools. Basically like a Lego set. I got the 2.5" diameter, 3.5 CLR version. They come in 15 degree segments. Snap together and twist until you have the shape you need, then duplicate it in the material of choice. After using them, they are certainly very handy.
