Making and repairing tools with pins
« on: January 23, 2012, 12:03:04 pm »
Its really not that hard to make your own tools like this though. A great relativly cheap source for hardened pin for making tools are roller chain connector links. They work great, aren't hard to find and come in many different sizes. A dremel or air tool with an abrasive blade will cut them right off. I have repaired a lot of tools purchased at flea markets with these pins also. Drilling the hole in a new tool can be a little tricky though. As simple as putting paper over the holes and rubbing with a pencil. Put paper over metal piece for tool, center punch and drill. Or a use vector angle algebra location algorythm or some sh_t like it. LOL Or put tool metal under a clutch clamp and drill all the way through. Probaly a good idea to use and old bad clutch though.
Just some ideas
Tom
