Pretty much a copy of the racetech one, in principle anyhow. Working on clearing up the shed and building a specific bench for suspension. ATM my big vice has bolted in aluminium jaws with a nice V.

Also made a collapsible, bolt together mousse changer/breaker but it pretty much looks like all the rest, just higher, so I don't have to work on my knees.

One of my favorite home made tools is the 2 foot long T-bar. Great for undoing fork/axle pinch bolts while clearing the top of the tyre.
