I was looking on the net for some TRIBSA Tank badges and came across this guy on Youtube making his own.. check this out

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RM8AOa3udJ8

This man has many skills check out his video for powder coating, homemade oven with clever hoist to remove frame.. neat.
If your into health & safety look away but he gets things done, his workshop looks a mess after all the clinically clean ones you normally see where people throw money at their bikes, he even cuts and threads his own spokes and has a clever jig for setting the angle of the bends most people just buy a new set already to go.I can relate to this as I used to have to make up spokes when I left school first job as bike mechanic.As he says in one of his videos the less people you involve in your builds the more control you have.. A man after my own heart.Dave

I watched the first four or five minutes and at first thought it was going to be one of these joke videos of a guy making conrods out of spoons or something, but then realized he was really doing it.

The freehand work with the saber saw, the messy shop, etc gives you the wrong impression .... !

That's a funny video, Allan! I didn't mind the jig saw too much, but the long sleeves around the lathe made me a little nervous. In the end, he did an unbelievable job with those badges. Thanks for posting, Tribsauk.

I guess you didnt watch the video of him tig welding next to a wet cell battery!!! I told you health and safety lot to look away.
The main reason for posting was to show you dont need loads of money and a surgically clean workshop to get things done just the right attitude & most of all innovation.

I like the Pink Floyd in the background. His shop is even messier than mine!
