General Hand tools, Impact wrench / emergency garage space in Rochester, NY. It's not much, but if someone gets in trouble between Buffalo and Syracuse and can limp here, I'll help how I'm able.

Shop to share

Add me into the pool if you'd like. I have a metal shop right in the heart of Silicon Valley (just south of downtown San Jose, CA). MIG, TIG, plasma cutter, bandsaws, airtools, grinders, sanders, CNC mill, lathe, lotsa other stuff. No motorcycle lift, though. I'd be glad to donate time and tools to someone needing a bike-fix spot, and have already welded on my share of kickstand repairs and frame touch-ups for friends.

Just PM me for contact info if needed.

Not much of a workshop..

but lots of hand tools, laptop and place to work.

It`s located on BUENOS AIRES, Argentina. But if anyone needs some help on the way to Ushuaia or anything like that.. send me a PM.

SteveBroskey, Tugrik & Hache_arg,

I have added your generous offers to the "on-site use only" list on page 1. If you wish to change your available tools please just edit your original post and also notify me (by PM) so I can update the list.

Thank you very much!

Hello All,
I'd like to pitch in and offer up my resources as well. Here's what I've got:

-Pretty decent set of hand and air tools (and air compressor), pretty much anything you would need for most maintenance job you can think of.
-Motorcycle ramp/trailer and pickup truck (I'd be willing to assist any stranded riders for some gas money and a cheeseburger).
-Garage space (I can do some limited storage but I'd like to keep that to a minimum to allow for work space).
-A neighbor who is the Snap-On tool guy. If I don't have it I'll just go across the street and buy or borrow it.

I'm in Nipomo, CA. so anyone in the area that has the need is free to use any of my resources for free (that is unless you're stranded out in the middle of nowhere and you need me to haul your bike away, then some gas dollars are helpful).

I think that this is a great thread and I also think that a google map of all the local help locations would be great.
Seemed like a good idea at the time...

I'm splitting my cases soon and need a flywheel puller suited for a honda xr/xl600. The one the guy has on here says it's good for a lot of honda's flywheels, but not mine unfortunately. I'd be happy to donate or lend one after I use it if I have to buy it.

Thanx Dust Junkie

Stumbled into the Garage forum last week looking for some info on a throttle body Sinc. I saw the tool pool thread and checked it out, WOW this is a great idea! I started looking and found a sinc tool about 3 mi from the house. Sent a message and the Dust junkie responded immediatly. Hooked up on Sunday and we took care of the sinc in about 15 min.

Just wanted to say thank you again Dust junkie and to Zen Slug & everyone who donates time and tools here!

See you on the trail

I am looking to borrow a MC type ring compressor for 85 mm pistons.
The automotive type usually wont fit due to interference with the studs.

I know a bunch of guys that work at a machine shop. If their workload can handle it, I might be able to have them fab up a couple of specialty tools if I can get blueprints, or equivilent, to donate to the pool. NotSafe - Got tired of VA drivers, huh? I live in VA Beach, noticed the area code.

How about adding a gear head pool? People who know how to or like to work on bikes their location and knowledge. So whenever people just need an extra hand but not a mechanic they could ask people locally and maybe pay them with gas money, food, beer, etc.
