That pretty much sums up a lot of the special stuff you have to acquire to do one special task in a repair job.

What kills me is that every time I need ot make another special tool, I end up having to make some kind of special tooling for the lather or mill first. Never ending chain of fun.

I have to admit, now that I'm getting ahead of the gremlins in the R80 ST the love hate pendulum is swinging more towards the love side. But I kept all the many special tools I made for the Ducatis just in case I ever go back to the Dark Side from fixing too many airhead quirks.

When a person asks you for advice, they don't want advice. They want corroboration.
