Hockey tape Motorcycle Tire Bead Breaker

It's a leverage tool to force the rubber tire away from the metal rim of a motorcycle wheel on the ground.  Mounted with the far-end hardware at the base of my workbench.  I made the handle angle steep for lots of leverage.  Thanks Heath for the wood prototype.  Cost = 20 when you buy enough to make two. With hardware. Without hockey tape.  I wonder how it works.

Big Surf Done?

The Nomad is a great bar.  Two patio spaces and a great room.  West bank rules.  Big surf played middle and crushed both by far.  Super fun night with Steve and Sean and Jason.

Big Surf Steve Chris Phil.  Chris is moving far away.  It might be something again at some point  but it won't be Big Surf after fifteen years.  Next gig is last gig.
Next door last night

The key is the hard plastic grab handle on the saw itself,  I cut those slots with my grinder.  The band saw really cuts amazingly fast and precisely and I'm using the original HF blade still (Milwaukee at HD same price).  The saw doesn't have a trigger lock so I easily carved a piece of plywood to slide right in there.  When setting this up you want to make sure the blade is plumb and level,  took a couple tries.  Saw stores in its case on the shelf.  Diresta's is still better.

Michael Schenker Fest was awesome

One of my very favorite guitarists on tour with his original solo bassist and drummer and four of the six singers that span his nearly four decade career.  Yes,  four singers,  singing their signature songs and singing together on many others.  McAuley so smoothly and casually stepping into the stage light to help Barden on the high part of Mad Axman - first appearance, well before his songs came up, then slipping off just as quietly.  Bonnet blowing me away with his vocal power at 71 years old.  White, the young gun in his 50s singing the "new" songs which I like very much.  It was like time traveling,  hearing that song with the right voice,  and the right guitar,  the entire night.  They ended with five straight UFO classics.  Better than expected.
