Homemade belt sander/ buffer.

Probably the handiest tool I've made.

Two trailer rollers, some scraps of steel, a couple of bearings and a cheap bench grinder.

I built an engine test stand....No big deal there, but then I built a circuit and wrote a computer program to read parameters. Does that count as a tool?

You make me so friggin inadequate it isn't funny! Duhhh, I can cut up metal and weld it together and make a light stand.
That makes everything I have ever made rolled all into one look like a piece of crap.

Yeah it qualifies as a tool. I would love to have that set-up...
Fantastic job

Do yourself a favor and get the best bench top grinder/polisher motor you can afford.
This works OK once it gets going. Starts a little slowly is all.

The first thing I used it for was to learn the headers I made were.....to put it nice, bad.

I hooked up individual EGT's more to play with then anything. I spent an enormous amount of time calibrating them in a Kiln.

When I ran the engine at a set RPM I found 1/2 the cylinders running temps over 2x the others. I thought my equipment was set up wrong. I swapped probes. The swapped probes showed the same temps.

After looking at the headers I realized the firing order and pairing were causing back pressure in 1/2 the cyl. The headers were built from scratch and I had them ceramic coated......so they will look nice on the wall when I hang them.

When the car is painted, I have another set to try. I am not getting these coated till I test them.

That is an excellent set up. I get the impression that you may not have realized the header problem otherwise. I imagine it takes hundreds of R&D hours to produce a State of the Art fixture that yours will be, when all said and done and polished up.
Very impressive looking set of headers..must have been a bit sickening, but offset by your instruments catching it.
I hope you keep us up on future development.
