All I did in the garage today was look around on my laptop. And got another day older.
I'm not sure what kind of plastic, but the gas might have an effect on it, combined with the pressure of the female QD.

made a bead breaker...

fabricated a crude yet (hopefully) effective bead breaker from scrap and attached it to a bicycle work stand I made from other scrap years ago....ugly but $0.00. 2x boards will go across the legs to support the wheel and tire...

For better/different leverage you might want to add a second attachment point for the upper bar a couple inches lower.

Im not sure if it counts, but after work, I mounted my ice tires for my KTM, but I did it in the basement.

Put the last piece of sheetrock up on the ceiling. One more wall to to go then get the garage door openers back up and running so I can put the cars back inside and out of the cold.

I considered that and still might do it but first am going to try adding 2x boards for front wheels, skinny vintage tires, etc. and see if that does the trick, raising the wheel 1.5" or 3" will change the angle of the linkage and the leverage quite a bit...I set it up initially so it will handle the fattest MC tires I have with one board across the legs.

Looks like you could do semi tires with that bad boy! Nice!

Thanks! it actually is not as big or heavy duty as it looks in the picture but I did not have a wheel off a bike to give a sense of scale....but it should be able to pop the bead on big stiff tubeless MC tires at least

If possible, Victor

post a video of a GS rear wheel with a Kenda Big Block tire?

notorious for hard to break down.

looks nice, I like the idea and design

Thanks! I don't have that specifically but do need to change the rear Tourance tire on my Tiger 955i soon and I'll post something on that (if it works ;-) I didn't design it myself, looked at a bunch of MC bead breakers on the web and based mine on the one that looked the best

Worked on this little guy. Sig Mosquito (.22 Cal), having problems with the slide "sticking" back while shooting, needs a "thumb bump" to go back into battery.



Polished up the feed ramp to try and aid feeding.



Also noticed the slide was pretty rough and was dragging very hard on the hammer, I think that may be the biggest issue. Polished up really well, we'll see on Tuesday when I go to the range how she runs.
